About Turn Right At Machu Picchu: Rediscovering The

Product Description THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING TRAVEL MEMOIRWhat 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? Review Praise for Turn Right at Machu Picchu “[An] engaging and sometimes hilarious book.”— The New York Times Book Review “A serious (and seriously funny) travelogue, a smart and tightly written history, and an investigative report into perhaps the greatest archaeological discovery in the last century.”—NationalGeographic.com “An engaging, informative guide to all things Inca.”— Entertainment Weekly“Adams deftly weaves together Inca history, Bingham's story, and his own less heroic escapade....Those favoring a quirkier retelling [of Bingham's exploits] will relish Mr. Adam's wry, revealing romp through the Andes.”— The Wall Street Journal “Quite funny and unpretentiously well informed...The perfect way to acknowledge the lost city’s one hundredth birthday.”— Christian Science Monitor (“Editor’s Choice”) “[An] entirely delightful book.”— The Washington Post“With a healthy sense of humor...Adams unearths a fascinating story, transporting his readers back to 1911, when Yale professor Hiram Bingham III hiked the Andes and stumbled upon on of South America's most miraculous and cloistered meccas.”—NPR.org About the Author Mark Adams is the author of the acclaimed history  Mr. America, which  The Washington Post named a Best Book of 2009, and the  New York Times bestsellers Meet Me in Atlantis and  Turn Right at Machu Picchu. A writer for many national magazines, including  GQ,  Men's Journal, and  New York, he lives near New York City with his wife and children. Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved. John's “martini explorer” comment had unnerved me a little—compared to Bingham, I was a white-wine spritzer explorer—so before committing to anything, I thought I should mention that it had been a while since I had slept outdoors. What came out of my mouth instead was “I might not be completely up-to-date on the latest tent-erecting methods.” “That's all right,” John said. “We'll need mules for a trip like this and the arrieros—the muleteers—can set up the tents. How do you feel about food?” “Sorry?” “You like cooked food?” John asked. I admitted that I did, in fact, have a weakness for victuals prepared over heat.
