Jungleland review ↠ 3 Î Armed with the personal notebooks of the mysterious World War II spy Theodore Morde an adventurer who attempted to assassinate Adolf Hitler journalist Christopher S Stewart sets out in search of the lost White City buried somewhere deep in the Mosuito Coast of Honduras Stewart pieces together the whirlwind life and peculiar death of Honduras Stewart pieces together the whirlwind life and peculiar death of Morde who sailed around the world five times before turning thirty as he tries to verify Morde's claim of having discovered the Lost City of the Monkey GodIn the tradition of The Lost Cit. Jungleland tells the story of one journalist’s search for the White City Ciudad Blanca in the Honduran Jungle based upon some notes found from a World War II spy and adventurer named Theodore Morde who had claimed to discover the city prior to World War II The city which resides in one of the most heavily wooded rain forests surrounded by indigenous tribes drug runners and bandits From the notes for Theodore Morde and interviews with his family the author decides to take a trip to find this lost city For me the book fell short of expectations and the subtitle is misleading There is little here about a WWII spy and the jump between present day and Morde was annoying and not in synch with what Stewart was following in his storyline Expecting to see something related to Latin American history of the mysterious lost city there was little details other than descriptions of rain forest and no real anthropological analysis being done The story is choppy with short chapters that alternate between Stewart and Morde As some other reviewers have noted this book is not bad but there really is nothing here to sink your teeth into The story of following a path from a previous explorer and speculating on what he was feeling at the time was uninteresting and for those interested in history this is a book to pass on

I was not convinced by this book I felt like I read a travel journey rather that a book detailing an important archaeological discovery The story of Mord the explorer is well narrated but it's used as a prop for the story rather than being an integral part of the plot I wasn't satisfied with the ending I won't give it away and even acknowledging that this is a nonfiction book the ending felt like a cliffhanger and a big letdown But enough about the negatives what I like about this book was the setting I mean who wouldn't want to follow in the footsteps of a famous archaeologist among the jungle while at the same time going in an adventure But that is not enough to salvage this book for me
