Turn Right at Machu Picchu: Rediscovering the Lost City One Step at a Time

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Mark Adams

Narrated By: Andrew Garman

Publisher: Recorded Books

Date: May 2012

Duration: 10 hours 11 minutes

Summary:

'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? '

    The audiobook seemed to skip chapters though without detracting from the story. Get a map or at least Google the map of the machu pichu area so you can visualize his and bingham's expeditions.

    I will be traveling to Peru in June and hiking on the Inca Trail. This book was terrific with getting prepared. Great stores, I know I will listen to it again!!
