Fawcett - Les cités perdues d'Amazonie

WAS £24.00 £12.00

Product description

Large format hardback, as new. In French. Graphic novel.

After several exemplary missions of exploration and mapping in South America for the Royal Society of Geography, Colonel Percy Harrison Fawcett, with his knowledge of Amazonian peoples and environments, persuades himself that there is a lost city in the heart of the vast equatorial forest. A certainty that turns into an obsession the day he finds the notebook of an ancient conquistador confirming the existence of this famous "city Z".

This man, who inspired Arthur Conan Doyle as much for his novels as Steven Spielberg to create Indiana Jones, is now going into a crazy quest to the detriment of his friends, his work and his family. In 1929, he embarked on a last chance expedition with the only two people who had agreed to go with him, his son and his best friend ...

Après plusieurs missions exemplaires d’exploration et de cartographie en Amérique du Sud pour la Société Royal de Géographie, le Colonel Percy Harrison Fawcett, fort de sa connaissance des peuples et milieux amazoniens, se persuade qu’il existe une cité perdue au cœur de l’immense forêt équatoriale. Une certitude qui se transforme en obsession le jour où il retrouve le carnet d’un ancien conquistador confirmant l’existence de cette fameuse « cité Z ».

Cet homme, qui inspira autant Arthur Conan Doyle pour ses romans que Steven Spielberg pour créer Indiana Jones, va dès lors se lancer dans une folle quête, au détriment de ses amis, de son travail et de sa famille. En 1929, il se lance dans une expédition de la dernière chance avec les deux seules personnes ayant encore accepté de l’accompagner, son fils et le meilleur ami de ce dernier…
