When Colonel Percy Harrison Fawcett and his expedition team walked into the Amazon jungle in April 1925, they left instructions that no one should attempt to rescue them should they not walk out of that same jungle by 1927. So confident was Fawcett in his capabilities, he cautioned that if they were to die, the conditions would have to have been so dangerous that an attempted rescue would only compound the tragedy.

Was it a premonition or a warning that they did not want to be found? Fawcett and his team never did come out of the jungle. In the 91 years since they disappeared, 100 potential rescuers died trying to figure out what happened. Still, the debate of what happened to Fawcett rages on. Adventure Journal
