Mark Adams is the author of the acclaimed history Mr. America, which The Washington Post named a Best Book of 2009. A writer for many publications, including GQ, Outside and The New York Times, he lives near New York City with his wife and children.
'Turn Right at Machu Picchu is thoughtful and informative, a wry and genial account rather than the forced jock fest of too many populist, fish-out-of-water narratives.' Weekend Australian 'Frank, funny and informative, Adams delivers the best and worst of travel experiences for the armchair explorer. Verdict: history, adventure and humour in spades.' Courier Mail and Daily Telegraph 'An engaging and sometimes hilarious book.' New York Times Book Review '[An] entirely delightful book.' -- Jonathan Yardley Washington Post 'A serious (and seriously funny) travelogue, a smart and tightly written history, and an investigative report into perhaps the greatest archaeological discovery in the last century.' nationalgeographic.com 'Mark Adams crisscrossed the Andes and has returned with a superb and important tale of adventure and archeology.' -- Sebastian Junger author of the Perfect Storm
