Deep in the tropical forests of Brazil, ancient ruins are discovered and a British explorer has mysteriously been lost. Indiana Jones and Deirdre Campbell, from the previous book 'Dance of the Giants', travel to Rio and romantically get married on the ship facing Pão de Açucar. From there they and their digging crew proceed into the dense jungle to find the long-lost explorer Colonal Percy Fawcett, whose mysterious writings are described to be able to revolutionize history. Fawcett believes that a city in the Brazilian jungle hosts mythical red-headed descendants of the ancient Celtic Druids. Indy and his friends face a horde of sundry rivals, from cannibals to gun-wielding hooligans. Tragically at the end, Indy's new bride, and the only wife ever mentioned in books, dies as they escape the hands of their enemies in the jungle.
