But when the plane crashed, only three pulled through to battle for survival.Emotionally devastated and badly injured, the trio faced certain death. Caught between spear-carrying tribesmen and enemy Japanese, they trekked down the jungle-covered mountainside and straight into superstitious natives rumored to be cannibals.Drawn from interviews, Army documents, photos, diaries, and original film footage, Lost in Shangri-La recounts this true-life adventure for the first time.

Mitchell Zuckoff reveals how the trio traversed the jungle- how brave Filipino-American paratroopers risked their lives to save the survivors- how a native leader protected the Americans- and how a cowboy colonel attempted an untried rescue mission to get them out.A riveting work of nonfiction that brings to life an odyssey at times terrifying, enlightening, and comic, Lost in Shangri-La is a thrill ride from beginning to end.
