The Lost City of Z by David Grann

An enthralling window into the extreme world of Amazonian exploration and the many people who have dedicated themselves to it. Deep in the dense, deadly, and unpredictable jungle that is at once beautiful and terrifying, Grann retraces the steps of the great explorer Percy Fawcett, a man consumed by his desire to find the fabled lost city of Z. Thoroughly researched and consistently thrilling, it kept me on the edge of my seat. –Jade

Atlas of Lost Cities by Aude de Tocqueville

For people who enjoyed the Atlas of Cursed Places comes this equally eerie companion. Atlas of Lost Cities illuminates the fragility of civilization and offers an artfully illustrated look into the past. Aude de Tocqueville uses old maps, original artwork, and compelling narratives to tell the stories of the rise and fall of cities around the world. Some, like Pompeii, are recognizable, while others, such as Villa Epecuén, an Argentinean town submerged under water, will be unfamiliar to most readers.  —Jade

Eruption by Steve Olson

Eruption chronicles the 1980 explosion of Mt. St. Helens and documents the days, months, and even centuries leading up to it. It is an engaging read about not just volcanoes, but also the American logging industry, environmentalism, and people’s staggering ability to ignore what’s right in front of them. Olson offers up the deeply personal experiences of the people near the volcano when it burst, those who survived, and those who didn’t.  —Jade
