Book Review: Lost in Shangri-la by Mitchell Zuckoff


Non-fiction.  I read this for the non-fiction book club at my local library (May 2014).  I thought this was an interesting read about a group of people who go through a plane crash and end up stranded in one of the least touched places in civilization (at that point anyway, one other explorer had been there but they did not really know too much about that).  It is set during the last months of WWII in New Guinea.  Apparently at the time, people followed the story of their search and rescue closely for a few weeks, but after the war ended people stopped paying attention to it.  This would be a great read if you want to know one of the many many many stories out there related to WWII or if you want to read a real life rescue adventure.

And so it goes...
