The Lost City of the Monkey God

by Douglas Preston

This non fiction account of the discovery and beginning of the exploration of “The White City” in Honduras was fascinating. Thought to be a myth, new Lidar technology allows a team to locate and begin to map the ruins of a lost civilization. According to legend, anyone who disturbs the ruins will be cursed, and the team does in fact contract a rare tropical disease. The author speculates about the rise and fall of the civilization, and the possible ways that disease brought by foreign explorers likely caused their tragic end.
