Publisher’s Description: 


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 explorers perilous path in search of the truthexcept hed written about adventure far more than hed actually lived it. In fact, hed never even slept in a tent.

Turn Right at Machu Picchu is Adams fascinating and funny account of his journey through some of the worlds most majestic, historic, and remote landscapes guided only by a hard-as-nails Australian survivalist and one nagging question: Just what was Machu Picchu?
