The Road to Lagoa Santa: A Novel
Marion Boyars Publishers, Incorporated, 1997 - 284 ページ
In 1833, the young Danish prize-winning naturalist Dr. P. W. Lund made a journey into the jungles of Brazil, from which he was destined never to return. Over a period of ten years, he discovered a wealth of fossilized bones, the remains of previously unknown pre-historic animals, while struggling against local insurrections and bouts of ill-health. Suddenly, at the age of 44, he stopped working and sank into a profound depression, bordering on insanity, which was to last until his death at the age of 79.
What really happened to Lund? Henrik Strangerup studied letters and archives and made two trips to Lagoa Santa to gather material on the myths which still surround 'The White Bone Collector'. His discoveries are embodied in this historical novel.
