The Search for Z: Colonel Percy Fawcett’s Obsession with the Golden City (Video)


The legend of El Dorado has captivated the imaginations of explorers, adventurers, and treasure hunters for centuries. But for Colonel Percy Fawcett, it was more than just a myth. He believed in the existence of the golden city, known to him as "Z," in the jungles of Brazil, and dedicated his life to finding it.

Percy Fawcett's quest was shrouded in mystery, and his disappearance during his final expedition only added to the allure of the legend. This is the story of a man who risked everything to uncover the truth behind the lost city of El Dorado, and the legacy he left behind.

You find the find ‘gold’ when/where you’re NOT looking for it.  If it’s there.
