In addition to the objective hazards of tropical disease, wild boars, and the deadly fer-de-lance viper, locals stoked the mystique, describing various curses awaiting would-be discoverers. But this team had an advantage that previous searchers had lacked: LIDAR, an advanced laser-imaging technology able to penetrate the dense jungle canopy - just enough - and return detailed elevation profiles from which subtle, man-made anomalies could be identified. Almost immediately, two major sites emerged, their scale and architecture indicating a civilization to rival another local, more famous power, the Maya." But the dangers were real- and Preston and several other contracted a horrifying disease in the jungle. Illustrated with photographs in color. Sources and bibliography, index. viii, 326 pp. Map endpapers. ISBN: 978-1455540006.
