    Writer for the New York Times and GQ, Mark Adams is also the acclaimed author of Mr. America. In this fascinating travelogue, Adams follows in the controversial footsteps of Hiram Bingham III, who’s been both lionized and vilified for his discovery of the famed Lost City in 1911—but which reputation is justified?

    While I read this book in preparation for a trip to Machu Picchu, I enjoyed getting an insiders perspective, one that I know I won't get as a tourist.
