JUNGLELAND A Mysterious Lost City, a WWII Spy, and a True Story of Deadly Adventure

by | Read by Jeff Brick

Contemporary Culture • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

Stewart presents two parallel searches for the fabled White City in Honduras: his own and that of 1940s adventurer Theodore Morde. The author used Morede's journals and walking stick, which contains codes, to attempt to do what Morde did—or didn’t do. Narrator Jeff Brick rises to the challenges of this book, keeping listeners fascinated with the stories and clear on which man's voice is speaking in the alternating chapters. One of his best renderings is that of Pancho, a wise man of few words who reveals what he knows about the fabled city with a poetic yet frightening voice. With humor and naïveté, Brick depicts Juan, who enthusiastically drives Stewart into the jungle in his boss's Geo Prism. Until the very end, the compelling story retains as many questions as it answers. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2013]
