Fawcett's last expedition
In 1925 Fawcett took his older son Jack with him to look for a lost city he had named "Z". Fawcett had studied ancient legends and historical records and become convinced that there was a lost city somewhere in the Mato Grosso region. He also left a note that if they did not return, no one should send a rescue expedition to try to find them, or they might suffer their fate.
Note: This is a real story. I suggest that you find and read the book.

Part of the book:
As I said before, my plans are to organize an exploration in the upper Amazon, following Col. Fawcett's tracks.
But now I realize that this may have to wait until the second expedition, when we will be a larger party. No sense in taking any chances by myself; especially after seeing what happened to the head of the fellow in the picture above.
So, the expedition in September will consist of Dr. Kenetics, Geography professor, Dr. Indiana Jones, a known explorer, Dr. Phil Alsa, the famous Geneologosexology professor, agent Verdegal37 (secret agent), and myself.
The mission will be open to other guests who may want to join. Please send in your application by July 4TH.
