"I began to daydream about the jungle...." On April 6, 1940, explorer and future World War II spy Theodore Morde (who would one day attempt to assassinate Adolf Hitler), anxious about the perilous journey that lay ahead of him, struggled to fall asleep at the Paris Hotel in La Ceiba, Honduras. Nearly seventy years later, in the same hotel, acclaimed journalist Christopher S. Stewart wonders what he's gotten himself into. Stewart and Morde seek the same answer on their quests: the solution to the riddle of the whereabouts of Ciudad Blanca, buried somewhere deep in the rain forest on the Mosquito Coast. Imagining an immense and immaculate El Dorado–like city made entirely of gold, explorers as far back as the Spanish conquistador Hernán Cortés have tried to find the fabled White City. Others have gone looking for tall white cliffs and gigantic stone temples—no one found a trace. Legends, like the jungle, are dense and captivating. Many have sought their fortune or fame down the Río Patuca—from Christopher Columbus to present-day college professors—and many have died or disappeared. What begins as a passing interest slowly turns into an obsession as Stewart pieces together the whirlwind life and mysterious death of Morde, a man who had sailed around the world five times before he was thirty and claimed to have discovered what he called the Lost City of the Monkey God. Armed with Morde's personal notebooks and the enigmatic coordinates etched on his well-worn walking stick, Stewart sets out to test the jungle himself—and to test himself in the jungle. As we follow the parallel journeys of Morde and Stewart, the ultimate destination morphs with their every twist and turn. Are they walking in circles? Or are they running from their own shadows? Jungleland is part detective story, part classic tale of man versus wild in the tradition of The Lost City of Z and Lost in Shangri-La. A story of young fatherhood as well as the timeless call of adventure, this is an epic search for answers in a place where nothing is guaranteed, least of all survival.

From the bestselling author of The Lost City of Z, soon to be a major film starring Charlie Hunnam, Sienna Miller and Robert Pattison, comes a true-life murder story which became one of the newly-created FBI's first major homicide investigations. In the 1920s, the richest people per capita in the world were members of the Osage Indian nation in Oklahoma. After oil was discovered beneath their land, they rode in chauffeured automobiles, built mansions and sent their children to study in Europe. Then, one by one, the Osage began to be killed off. The family of an Osage woman, Mollie Burkhart, became a prime target. Her relatives were shot and poisoned. And this was just the beginning, as more and more members of the tribe began to die under mysterious circumstances, and many of those who dared to investigate the killings were themselves murdered. As the death toll climbed, the FBI took up the case. It was one of the organization's first major homicide investigations and the bureau badly bungled it. In desperation, its young director, J. Edgar Hoover, turned to a former Texas Ranger named Tom White to unravel the mystery. Together with the Osage he and his undercover team began to expose one of the most chilling conspiracies in American history.

Van wie is de aarde? Van die ene, alles verwoestende soort of ook van die duizend andere soorten? Deze vraag beheerst Moeder van God, een spannend avonturenverhaal, een aangrijpend pleidooi en een indrukwekkende documentaire over de natuur. En wat voor natuur: krokodillen, slangen van ruim acht meter, de koninklijke jaguar en een verweesde babyreuzenmiereneter als huisdier. Nergens is onze aarde zo rijk als hier, in het grensgebied van Andes en Amazone, het gebied dat bekendstaat als `Madre de Dios, `Moeder van God. Paul Rosolie reisde vanuit New York naar deze nauwelijks betreden en ontoegankelijke streek waaraan hij zijn hart verloor. Beangstigend weergeweld en de dreiging van een onbekende indianenstam verhinderen hem niet om de zeldzaamste flora en fauna te ontdekken. Maar mogelijk is hij een van de laatste verkenners van de Moeder van God, want zoals overal in het Amazonegebied wordt het paradijs bedreigd. Rosolie laat in zijn schitterende boek zien dat het adagium van de indianen - `We erven de aarde niet van onze voorouders, we lenen die van onze kinderen - vandaag de dag toepasselijker is dan ooit. Paul Rosolie is bioloog en maakte een bekroonde natuurfilm. Hij werkte aan projecten voor natuurbehoud in India, Indonesië en Peru, maar is gespecialiseerd in het westelijke Amazonegebied. Moeder van God is zijn eerste boek. `Rosolie zorgt voor een ouderwets jungleavontuur, met een zeldzame urgentie en een diep gevoel voor de mensen en dieren die op zijn weg komen. The Wall Street Journal `Paul Rosolie heeft een uniek boek geschreven. Zijn levendige schrijfstijl dompelt je onder in zijn avonturen, waarin hij een oud onaangetast oerwoud verkent waar geen blanke man ooit geweest is. Er zijn passages die je zullen achtervolgen, scènes die je nooit meer vergeet. Jane Goodall, ambassadeur van de Verenigde Naties
