<b>THE <i>NEW YORK TIMES </i>BESTSELLING TRAVEL MEMOIR<br /><br />What happens when an unadventurous adventure writer tries to re-create the original expedition to Machu Picchu?<br /><br /></b>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.<br /><br /><i>Turn Right at Machu Picchu</i> 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 <i>was</i> Machu Picchu?

<b>Two men, three years, seven countries, 3000 miles...</b><br /><br />The Central American Sea Kayak Expedition 2000 (CASKE2000) is an inspiring journey of exploration, endurance, and self-discovery that takes Jean-Philippe Soulé and his traveling partner Luke Shullenberger from Baja California all the way to Panama.<br /><br />During this unfathomably grueling expedition, they will face every manner of threat, from sharks, crocodiles, and bandits to stormy seas, malaria, and their own mortality all in search of a deeper connection to Mother Nature and the indigenous people who revere her most.<br /><br />This is a tale of adventure, sacrifice, and physical endurance that will leave you breathless with excitement, mourning for our heroes' losses, and cheering their successes. The evocative, gripping narrative coupled with countless, award-worthy photographs makes this a must-read for those who love travel, outdoor adventure, and the exploration of other cultures.<br /><br />But most of all, it's for the dreamers who've been told they can't, and stubbornly refuse to listen.
