“Douglas Preston is one of the most adventurous figures in American letters today. Inured to personal danger, braving venomous snakes and lethal pathogens, he somehow gets it all–the science, the history, the intrigues, the obsessive characters, the electric moment of discovery, and the haunted cries of a once-powerful civilization. Preston’s marvelous story is made all the more potent by the astonishing fact that, from beginning to end, it happens to be true.”―Hampton Sides ( bestselling author of In the Kingdom of Ice)
Lost City of the Monkey God,” a 2018 documentary that explores the same subject of Dougles Preston’s New York Times bestselling book, premiered Sunday night, January 7, 2024 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on the Science Channel. This documentary may be found on other streaming services via some internet sleuthing, free or with a subscription.
