In J. Allan Dunn's THE TREASURE OF ATLANTIS, an orchid hunter's discovery is the catalyst that leads an expedition into the interior of South America to the lost remnant of ancient Atlantis.

Here is thrilling adventure out of the past in the Edgar Rice Burroughs tradition.

But there they ended definitely in a smooth wall. So I decided to follow the stream downward. It ran almost due northeast toward the Amazon, and I hoped that later it would widen and become navigable for a raft. Shorthanded as we were, that was a slim chance, but the only one in sight.
