If anyone is looking for an entertaining non-fiction "summer" read that combines history with real-life 'adventure', I highly recommend
The Forgotten Fatherland: the Search for Elisabeth
Basically, it is about the (dwindling) German community living in the middle of a South American jungle.
I read it in the summer of '97, and I still remember it as time well spent.
