Description
In 1887 two British sailors landed on the coast of Ecuador and set off across the Andes to locate an immense hoard of Inca gold, lost for centuries in a remote and mysterious mountain range. Armed with a document provided by a botanist who had recently returned from the Amazon, they were convinced that they knew where the bounty was hidden. In this entrancing chronicle, journalist and Royal Geographical Society Fellow Mark Honigsbaum attempts to unravel a riddle that has obsessed men for centuries. At first reluctant to believe in the treasure, he nonetheless delves into the botanist's life and discovers an ancient Spanish treasure guide buried in his notebook. From there on, Honigsbaum too is hooked.

"Delightful and intriguing.... In Honigsbaum's exploration and compelling narrative, he reveals a glorious region of Ecuador and gives us a view into men's hearts and that secret place where mystery and possibility reside, utterly undeterred by hard logic and daunting facts."LATimes
