    What happens when an unadventurous adventure writer tries to re-create the original expedition to Machu Picchu? In this fascinating travelogue, Mark Adams follows in the controversial footsteps of Hiram Bingham III, who’s been both lionized and vilified for his discovery of the famed Lost City—but which reputation is justified? In 1911, Bingham climbed into the Andes Mountains of Peru and “discovered” Machu Picchu. History has recast Bingham as a villain who stole both priceless artifacts and credit for finding the great archeological site, but Adams set out to retrace the explorer’s perilous path in search of the truth—except he’d written about adventure far more than he’d actually lived it. In fact, he’d never even slept in a tent. Turn Right at Machu Picchu is Adams’ fascinating and funny account of his journey through some of the world’s most majestic, historic, and remote landscapes guided only by a hard-as-nails Australian survivalist and one nagging question: Just what was Machu Picchu?
