Summary
Tells the story of the U.S. Darien Exploring Expedition, a harrowing endeavor undertaken in 1854 under the command of thirty-three-year-old U.S. Navy lieutenant Isaac Strain to locate a break in the mountains across the narrowest portion of the Isthmus of Darien in present-day Panama that might serve as an Atlantic-Pacific ship canal route
Summary
A recollection of the treacherous 1850 journey across the Darien Gap recreates the starvation, disease, and exhaustion that dogged twenty-nine men during their trek across mountains and jungles
