MITCHELL ZUCKOFF

MONDAY, MAY 14; 7 PM @ The Greene

MITCHELL ZUCKOFF will discuss Lost in Shangri-La, his remarkable account of the extraordinary mission to rescue three survivors of a U.S. military plane that crashed in an isolated corner of the South Pacific during World War II. The plane made a flyover of a remote valley located high in the island’s central mountains that was populated by ancient indigenous tribe members. It was thought they might be headhunters or cannibals. The pilot miscalculated the plane’s altitude and flew it into the side of a mountain. Only three of the 24 military personnel survived: Lieutenant John McCollom, Tech Sergeant Kenneth Decker and Corporal Margaret Hastings. To write their story, Zuckoff visited the valley to interview tribes people who were children when the strange trio first hobbled into their midst. It’s a fascinating story. The wife of one of the survivors, Mrs. John McCollom, will be at the event.
