CommUnity Book Club--Lost In Shangri-la
Lost in Shangri-la by Mitchell Zuckoff, is the exhilarating, untold story of an extraordinary rescue mission near the end of World War II. A plane carrying 24 members of the United States military, including nine Women’s Army Corps members, crashed into the New Guinea jungle during a sightseeing excursion. The three survivors were stranded deep in a jungle valley notorious for its cannibalistic tribes. The story of their survival and the stunning efforts undertaken to save them are the crux of Lost in Shangri-La. Contact the library to obtain a copy and join in the discussion.
