Turn Right at Machu Picchu Book Summary/Review:

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?

He had started coming to Cusco twenty years ago when he was working as an extreme-trip leader, driving fearless globe-trotters across four continents in an open-back truck. He had seen interest in serious adventure dwindle. People wanted hotels, cafés, and the Internet. #2 Hiram Bingham III was the explorer who discovered Machu Picchu. He was
