This was a great adventure and I'd recommend it to anyone thus inclined...

After being engulfed by a tornado whilst out in their uncle's flying machine, brothers Bruno and Waldo Gillespie end up in a strange uncharted land of virgin forest which, in it's midst lies an Aztec City! Accompany the brothers and their uncle Professor Phaeton Featherwit as they venture through this strange and terrible land...

Good, but a few odd twists in the plot

They seem to be saved by friendly strangers a few too many times, and bears are psychopathic killing machines in this book. So, the plots a bit...odd.

The Librivox read is good, though.
