So much about The Five Lost Days appeals to my adventurous side.  Taking place in Belize, a small Latin American country I long to see, it focuses on Michael Burns, a documentary film director who takes his crew to the jungles to film a “curandero”.  Curanderos are a sort of Mayan medicine man, close to extinction.  Their focus on herbs and medicinal plants only heightened my fascination with the book.

Kelly, an American who lives in the jungle with distant pot-smoking rebel husband Frank, works for an American pharmaceutical company.  She was sent to Belize ten years previous to study the healing plants; in her love for the jungle and a deep affection for the elderly curandero, she stays on much longer than she’d originally intended.

As Burns soon finds out, the five days he’s scheduled to film are considered in Mayan tradition to be The Five Lost Days - an evil time Mayans of the old ways see fit to stay home and wait out in fear  But the show must go on… if Burns can help it.
