Professor John Waales, an anthropologist at U.C. Berkeley has spent his life in quest of a great find. He has been the assistant on many good projects, but every original project he tries winds up in failure. His wife died suddenly when he was on a failed mission out of contact with his family for six weeks. His daughter, who was 12 at the time never forgave him completely. He lost himself in his work and further alienated her. He has been working on finding the famed El Dorado, the legendary city made of gold hidden in the Andean Mountains near Bogota, the modern capitol of Columbia, for years. He is close friends with a chiropractor, Dr. Jack Paris, who takes care of him and his daughter. He has an assistant, Robin Quigley, who is secretly plotting against him to capture gold and the glory of the El Dorado treasure. He is also friends with the skipper of a W.W.II PT boat who takes him up the Amazon in search for the gold. His theory, laughed at by many of his colleagues, shows that the Chibcha Indians, who built the Lost City at Lake Guatavita, actually tore down the buildings covered with sheets of gold, took their treasures, and moved out of the mountains down several thousand feet to the Amazon jungle, along one of the many hidden tributaries. Here they hid from the outside world and were never heard from again, except by occasional sightings, all unconfirmed. This data had been gathered by Professor Waales and was now waiting physical confirmation. There is an Ex-CIA spy, Thomas Reichen, who was kicked out of the Agency and was supposed to be terminated. They were unable to kill him and he changed his looks and his identity. He became a professional guide in Peru and Columbia and learned those countries inside and out. He has connections with the natives, terrorists, drug runners and gun dealers. He is hired by a Financier, Leon Scarborough, who is financing the efforts of the Anthropologist, but is actually working for a terrorist.
