Product Description

What happens when an unadventurous adventure writer tries to re-create the original expedition to Machu Picchu?

In 1911, Hiram Bingham III climbed into the Andes Mountains of Peru and “discovered” Machu Picchu. While history has
recast Bingham as a villain who stole both priceless artifacts and credit for finding the great archeological site, Mark
Adams set out to retrace the explorer’s perilous path in search of the truth—except he’d written about adventure far
more than he’d actually lived it. In fact, he’d never even slept in a tent.

Turn Right at Machu Picchu is Adams’ fascinating and funny account of his journey through some of the world’s most
majestic, historic, and remote landscapes guided only by a hard-as-nails Australian survivalist and one nagging
question: Just what was Machu Picchu?
