Description
On May 13, 1945, twenty-four American servicemen and WACs boarded a transport plane for a sightseeing trip over Shangri-La, a beautiful and mysterious valley deep within the jungle-covered mountains of Dutch New Guinea.Unlike the peaceful Tibetan monks of James Hilton s bestselling novel Lost Horizon , this Shangri-La was home to spear-carrying tribesmen, warriors rumored to be cannibals. But the pleasure tour became an unforgettable battle for survival when the plane crashed. Miraculously, three passengers pulled through. Emotionally devastated, badly injured, and vulnerableto the hidden dangers of the jungle, the trio faced certain death unless they left the crash site. Caught between maneating headhunters and enemy Japanese, the wounded passengers endured a harrowing hike down the mountainside a journey that would lead them straight into a primitive tribe of superstitious natives who had never before seen a white man or woman. Drawn from interviews, declassified U.S. Army documents, personal photos and mementos, a survivor s diary, a rescuer s journal, and original film footage, Lost in Shangri-La recounts this incredible true-life adventure for the first time."
