New Nonfiction: Lost in Shangri-La by Mitchell Zuckoff

After the publication of Lost Horizon in 1933, "Shangri-La" came to mean any remote, unspoiled place. Small wonder, then, that an inaccessible valley high the central mountains of New Guineau was dubbed "Shangri-La" when it was first discovered by the outside world during World War II. It quickly became a flyover tourist attraction, at least until one plane crash-landed in this not-so-idyllic Eden. Lost in Shangri-La tells the true story of the survivors of this plane crash and how they managed to return home.
