Henry Shukman is a poet, and much of The Lost City edges toward lyricism. He is a travel writer, too, and the book is partly that inescapable familiar of contemporary travel writing, a Quest for something or other, and partly an all-too-realistic evocation of life in the murkier parts of South America. Through it all, though, there runs a thread, like a streak of ore in a rock, that is a pledge of genuine literature.
