For more than 20 years, TV producer Weinberg was obsessed with the centuries-old legend of the Lost City of the Monkey God, aka Ciudad Blanca, hidden deep in the dense Central American jungle.The book is composed of his journals written in Honduras, more than 180 stunning photographs and the author’s personal thoughts and feelings about what became a world-famous 21st century discovery.
