Title: Lost in Shangri-La: A True Story of Survival, Adventure, and the Most Incredible Rescue Mission of W
Author: Mitchell Zuckoff (Narrator) Mitchell Zuc
In 1945, American servicemen and WACs boarded a transport plane for a trip over “Shangri-La,” a beautiful and mysterious valley deep within the jungle-covered mountains of Dutch New Guinea. But the pleasure tour became an unforgettable battle for survival when the plane crashed. Miraculously, three passengers pulled through. The author reveals how the determined trio—dehydrated, sick, and in pain—traversed the dense jungle to find help; how a brave band of paratroopers risked their own lives to save the survivors; and how a cowboy colonel attempted a previously untested rescue mission to get them out.
