I must admit that I was not aware of this.


I am about 70% through this book. It is an easy and interesting read, and it contains some good Pulp scenario fodder.

John Ringo's "Yellow Eyes" takes place around Panama, including the Darien area. It's a sci-fi book, but from his description and what little I just read about the Darien, it's not a nice place to wander around. Thanks for the link.

They should have learnt from Scotland's earlier attempt.

They relied on a more contemporary report which turned out to be a significant fabrication.

This would make a great tv series.

That sounds like a hoot.
