The Colonel

The Colonel is a tribute to a long-held mystery of the Amazon: the tale of Col. Percy Harrison Fawcett. Fawcett is most famous for his life-long search for "Z": an ancient lost city, which he and others believed to be El Dorado, the mythical city of gold.

Col. Fawcett was a British artillery officer, archaeologist, and South American explorer. Fawcett's first expedition to South America was in 1906 when, at the age of 39, he travelled to Brazil to map a jungle area at the behest of the Royal Geographical Society.

Fawcett made seven expeditions between 1906 and 1924. Based on documentary research, Fawcett had formulated his ideas about "Z" in Brazil by the outbreak of World War I. At that time he returned to Britain for active service, volunteered for the front in Flanders, and led an artillery brigade despite the fact that he was approaching fifty years of age. After the war he returned to Brazil to continue his search.

Along with his eldest son, Fawcett disappeared under unknown circumstances in 1925 during an expedition into the uncharted jungles of Brazil in search for "Z". “Z” remains a lost city, though it is said that Fawcett finally found his way there and chose never to leave. This is the version we like to believe: commit to your dreams and the adventure will reward you.
