John's “martini explorer” comment had unnerved me a little—compared to Bingham, I was a white-wine spritzer explorer—so before committing to anything, I thought I should mention that it had been a while since I had slept outdoors. What came out of my mouth instead was “I might not be completely up-to-date on the latest tent-erecting methods.”

“That's all right,” John said. “We'll need mules for a trip like this and the arrieros—the muleteers—can set up the tents. How do you feel about food?”


“You like cooked food?” John asked.

I admitted that I did, in fact, have a weakness for victuals prepared over heat.

Curtis Johnson, August 15, 2012 (view all comments by Curtis Johnson)
This is a very enjoyable travelogue/adventure/history type book in which our inept outdoorsman author decides to set out and follow the historical Peruvian trail of Hiram Bingham III. Adams follows Bingham's route that led to the "discovery" of the now world renowned Machu Picchu site. I love how the book alternates chapters to what Bingham did with chapters about the authors experience along the same trail. You certainly feel like you are trekking right along with Adams in this adventure to reach the once hidden city. Anyone interested in this genre should definitely pick this one up!
