Friday 56 - The Lost City of Z

This is a weekly meme hosted by Freda's Voice.

These are the rules:
1. Grab a book, any book.
2. Turn to page 56, or 56% on your eReader.
3. Find any sentence (or a few, just don't spoil it) that grabs you.
4. Post it.
5. Add the URL to your post in the link on Freda's most recent Friday 56 post. 
Brooding day and night, Fawcett hatched various half-baked schemes- to mine nitrate in Brazil, to prospect for oil in California-in order to raise money for his expedition.


  1. What genre is this book? Happy reading. :)

    1. It is a true story so I would say Non-Fiction. The flow of writing is a bit off and the chapters jump around a lot. So far I have read chapters about Percy Fawcett, the author, and another explorer whose name escapes me. All the stories are true so best I can place it is Non-Fiction.

  2. Wow, it sounds like a lot of fun for a nonfiction book.
