    On May 13, 1945, 24 American servicemen and WACs boarded a transport plane for a sightseeing trip over “Shangri-La,” a beautiful and mysterious valley deep within the jungle-covered mountains of Dutch New Guinea. Unlike the peaceful Tibetan monks of James Hilton’s best-selling novel Lost Horizon, this Shangri-La was home to spear-carrying tribesmen, warriors rumored to be cannibals. But the pleasure tour became an unforgettable battle for survival when the plane crashed. Miraculously, three passengers pulled through.

    Janice says: "Facinating history"

    What did you love best about Lost in Shangri-La?

    The factual representation and the weaving in of a storyteller's point of view


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Lt. McCollom - Pretty typical of the WW II military... He was there (in the military) because he wanted to be, was scared, and was strong.


    Have you listened to any of Mitchell Zuckoff’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    NO


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Exactly the same as the book's Lost in Shangri-La


    Any additional comments?

    My father was in WW II and in New Guinea. This story resembles his experiences.
