    Review ------ "Ebullient..seamlessly joins three narrative threads..an engaging and sometimes hilarious book."-New York Times Book Review "[An] entirely delightful book"-Jonathan Yardley, Washington Post (also chosen as a 2011 Year-End Pick) "Like all great travelogues (and this is certainly one), 'Turn Right'..should come with a fedora and a rucksack." -Men's Journal, Ten Best Nonfiction Books of 2011 "Adams deftly weaves together Inca history, Bingham's story and his own less heroic escapade..[A] wry, revealing romp through the Andes."-Wall Street Journal "A serious (and seriously funny) travelogue, a smart and tightly written history, and an investigative report into perhaps the greatest archaeological discovery in the last century."-Nationalgeographic.com "Like Bill Bryson, Adams peppers his book with interesting anecdotes, trenchant observations and frequently hilarious asides. But..the book's scholarship and its organization also call to mind John McPhee's 'Coming into the Country'..You're guaranteed to be swept up in Adams' vivid descriptions."-BookPage "Quite funny and unpretentiously well informed..Short of actually traveling to Machu Picchu yourself, it's the perfect way to acknowledge the lost city's 100th birthday as a modern-day tourist site."-Christian Science Monitor ("Editor's Choice") "If you haven't been to Machu Picchu and environs, this book will inspire you to drop everything and go. And if you've already been, Turn Right at Machu Picchu will transport you straight back to those soul-soaring heights."-National Geographic Traveler ("Book of the Month") "A story that hooks readers early and then sails along so interestingly that it's one of those 'can't put it down' books. What more could armchair adventurers want?"-Associated Press "Adams proves an engaging, informative guide to all things Inca."-Entertainment Weekly "Mark Adams crisscrossed the Andes and has returned with a superb and important tale of adventure and archeology."-Sebastian Junger Read more ( javascript:void(0) ) About the Author ---------------- MARK ADAMS is the author of the acclaimed history���Mr. America, which���The Washington Post���named a Best Book of 2009, and the���New York Times bestseller���Turn Right at Machu Picchu.��� He writes for many national magazines, including���GQ, Men's Journal, and New York.
