The Amazing Story of Colonel Percy Fawcett

What the Hell Happened to the Man Who Mapped the Amazon?


Since I was a kid I have had a fascination with Explorers.

In partcular, Explorers of the Amazon.

As a writer people like Colonel Percy Fawcett whose life seems to blend myth and reality has always been a driving inspiration for me.

If you have not read the book The Lost City of Z: A Tale of Deadly Obsession in the Amazon, I recommend it highly.

The Bad-Ass Files: Raoul Lufbery

Raoul Lufbery


It’s hard not to admire a man with ice-water in his veins, who craves adventure at every turn, who goes into battle not because he hates the man in front of him as so much he repsects and loves the man behind him.

Plus anybody with two pet lions named “Whiskey” and “Soda” is just BAD ASS!
