In 1995, Stephen Kirkpatrick joined a five-man expedition into the remote jungles of the Peruvian Amazon. Kirkpatrick's assignment was to document an area of the rainforest that had never before been photographed, nor by most accounts, ever explored by white men. Within hours of their departure, an inaccurate map and a series of bad decisions leave the group hopelessly lost in the depths of the Amazon jungle. What began as a career-making photo expedition quickly turned into a desperate struggle for survival. The five men battle poisonous reptiles, hungry bugs, torrential rains, brutal heat, and an unforgiving landscape in an attempt to find their way back to civilization. They soon learn that survival is not only a physical, but a mental and spiritual challenge as well. Lost in the Amazon is a gripping, sometimes humorous, and ultimately inspirational story about the human drive to survive, and about clinging to faith in the worst circumstances imaginable.

"The only way I am coming home is by bike or by box," Steve Crombie writes when he first hits the road, travelling 90,000kms from Australia to the Arctic Circle via South America. It takes him two years. He suffers from dehydration, starvation and disease. He rebuilds his motorcycle four times. Along the way Steve not only tests his limits but meets the world head on - waking up behind iron bars in Tierra Del Fuego; traversing the length of the Amazon with a 260 kilogram motorcycle in tow; evading pumas in Guyana; skimming across the Caribbean on a yacht with wanted criminals; dodging bullets in Nicaragua and finally paddling a few laps in the Arctic Ocean. Lost on Earth is an adrenaline rush, taking the reader to the wilds of South America, with a man who made the dream of following a road less travelled into a reality. Hitch a ride.

IT was on the morning of the 26th of May, 1848, that after a short passage of twenty-nine days from Liverpool, we came to anchor opposite the southern entrance to the River Amazon, and obtained our first view of South America. In the afternoon the pilot came on board, and the next morning we sailed with a fair wind up the river, which for fifty miles could only be distinguished from the ocean by its calmness and discoloured water, the northern shore being invisible, and the southern at a distance of ten or twelve miles. Early on the morning of the 28th we again anchored; and when the sun rose in a cloudless sky, the city of Pará, surrounded by the dense forest, and overtopped by palms and plantains, greeted our sight, appearing doubly beautiful from the presence of those luxuriant tropical productions in a state of nature, which we had so often admired in the conservatories of Kew and Chatsworth. The canoes passing with their motley crews of Negroes and Indians, the vultures soaring overhead or walking lazily about the beach, and the crowds of swallows on the churches and house-tops, all served to occupy our attention till the Custom-house officers visited us, and we were allowed to go on shore. Pará contains about 15,000 inhabitants, and does not cover a great extent of ground; yet it is the largest city on the greatest river in the world, the Amazon, and is the capital of a province equal in extent to all Western Europe. It is the residence of a President appointed by the Emperor of Brazil, and of a Bishop whose see extends two thousand miles into the interior, over a country peopled by countless tribes of unconverted Indians. The province of Pará is the most northern portion of Brazil, and though it is naturally the richest part of that vast empire, it is the least known, and at present of the least commercial importance. The appearance of the city from the river, which is the best view that can be obtained of it, is not more foreign than that of Calais or Boulogne. The houses are generally white, and several handsome churches and public buildings raise their towers and domes above them. The vigour of vegetation is everywhere apparent. The ledges and mouldings support a growth of small plants, and from the wall-tops and window-openings of the churches often spring luxuriant weeds and sometimes small trees. Above and below and behind the city, as far as the eye can reach, extends the unbroken forest; all the small islands in the river are wooded to the water's edge, and many sandbanks flooded at high-water are covered with shrubs and small trees, whose tops only now appeared above the surface. The general aspect of the trees was not different from those of Europe, except where the "feathery palm-trees" raised their graceful forms; but our imaginations were busy picturing the wonderful scenes to be beheld in their dark recesses, and we longed for the time when we should be at liberty to explore them.

Peru, Christmas Eve, 1970. It was supposed to be a routine flight, carrying 86 passengers across the Andes Mountains and home for the holiday. But high above the Amazon rainforest, a roiling storm engulfs the plane. Lightning strikes. A deafening whoosh sweeps through the cabin. And suddenly, 17-year-old Juliane Koepcke is alone. The plane has vanished. She is strapped to her seat and plunging 3,500 feet to the forest floor. On Christmas Day, she wakes. She is injured, covered in mud, but strangely--miraculously--alive. And now, in a remote corner of the largest rainforest on Earth, the real battle for survival begins.

Acting as the planet's air conditioner, the rainforest sucks up millions of tons of greenhouse gases and stores them safely out of the atmosphere. South America's deforestation threatens to unleash a kind of "carbon bomb" that will add to our already deteriorating climate difficulties. As he travels across Peru and Brazil, recognized South America expert Nikolas Kozloff talks to locals, scientists and activists about the rainforest and what should be done to avert its collapse. Drawing on his expertise of South American politics, Kozloff argues that cooperation between the world's countries is essential in turning back the tide of climate change and that the fate of the planet depends on our response to environmental problems within the southern hemisphere.

An investigation into the ancient technologically advanced artifacts amassed by Father Carlo Crespi and how they offer proof of Atlantis in South America • Includes photos and descriptions of the strange machines and beautiful artifacts that once comprised the “Crespi Treasure” • Connects Crespi’s treasures to readings by Edgar Cayce and Annie Besant’s descriptions of Atlantean colonies in Ecuador • Reveals the nuclear war between the Atlanteans and the Aryans and the radioactive evidence left behind in the Bahamas and Pakistan In 1923 an Italian priest, Father Carlo Crespi, came to Ecuador as a missionary. Befriending the indigenous Shuar people, he learned of an ancient treasure they had sworn to protect hidden within a network of underground tunnels. As newly converted Christians, the Shuar wanted to share with their priest these amazing anachronistic artifacts--golden sarcophagi from Egypt, bronze plaques depicting famous scenes from antiquity bearing both Quechua and Phoenician writing, copper wheels and gears as hard as steel, strange machines, and many other inexplicable items. Crespi faithfully maintained the collection until just before his death when the Ecuadorian government purchased it from the church and many of these priceless treasures were lost forever. Providing detailed descriptions and his own photos of the advanced technologies and beautiful art that comprised the “Crespi Treasure,” Richard Wingate reveals that the ancient civilization responsible for these advanced artifacts was Atlantis. Connecting Crespi’s treasures to Edgar Cayce’s descriptions of advanced technology in the distant past and the Atlantean colonies of Ecuador described by Annie Besant, Wingate explores other evidence of Atlantis in South America and the Bahamas, including geographically out-of-place underwater ruins and buried magnetic ore. Investigating ancient records, such as the Mahabharata, he shows how a prehistoric nuclear war between the Atlanteans and the Aryans ultimately resulted in the sinking of Atlantis, and he uncovers the radioactive archaeological evidence left behind. Explaining how our ancient ancestors regretted their nuclear actions and destroyed or buried their advanced technology, entering into a self-imposed Stone Age, he shows how our civilization is headed down the same path and that only through “green” choices can we avoid the same fate as Atlantis.
