THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING TRAVEL MEMOIR

What 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?
