Read in January, 1968

I did not read the edition whose cover is illustrated in Goodreads. I read a much older edition of this book, which was originally published in the 1930s.

Peter Fleming was a brother of the better known Ian Fleming, the creator of James Bond ( Agent 007: Licenced to k...). He was also an author, less wellknown than Ian, but his real life was at least as adventurous as James Bond's fictional one.

Brazilian Adventure is an amusing account of an expedition to Brazil that included the author. As far as I can remember the aim of the expedition was to discover the fate of Colonel Percy Fawcett, eho had set of for Brazil to discover a 'lost city'. As with the city, Fawcett also disappeared without a trace.

This book is very readable, and, like all of Peter Fleming's other books, fascinating.
