Lost in Shangri-La by by Mitchell Zuckoff

| |

While searching Word War II newspaper archives, journalism professor Mitchell Zuckoff found an amazing story that few today had ever heard. Twenty-four servicemen and women boarded a plane in 1945 for a sightseeing tour of a recently-discovered valley that was rumored to contain headhunters deep in Dutch New Guinea. The plane crashed, and the survivors encountered the valley’s indigenous people, who were steeped in superstition and tribal warfare. This true-life adventure will keep you reading with a rescue plan that seems too remarkable even for a Hollywood movie. (Harper)
