In 1925, renowned British explorer Colonel Percy Harrison Fawcet and his son Jack set out to find the fabled city of Z (also known as El Dorado) in the Amazon. They were never seen again. Their story became almost as legendary as El Dorado itself and yet their disappearance had never been solved, perhaps until now. New Yorker staff writer David Grann chronicles the Fawcets story and even follows their trail into the Amazon in his book The Lost City of Z.
