Fever, Famine and Gold, first published in 1938, is an exciting account of the search for Incan treasure in the jungles and mountains of the Amazon basin and Andes of Ecuador. With the backing of financiers in New York, Loch assembled his expedition and spent two years searching for the fabled Valverde treasure. Along the way, the explorers collected valuable specimens of birds and mammals, and information about the remote native tribes they encountered. Returning home after failing to find the treasure, Loch is reported to have drunk a bottle of whiskey and shot himself with his army revolver. Author and Scotsman Captain E. Erskine Loch was a veteran of the Uganda Highlanders and an officer in the British Army who fought in India and Africa. Included are 17 pages of maps and illustrations.
