One of the best books on Inca history extant. The English translation is very good, particular in view of the academic level of vocabulary the author needed to use because of the nature of the subject.

Very difficult to read. It is a transliterated book from Spanish. Great content, but reading it takes work.

This book is a wonderful source of information regarding the stablishment of the nobelity in the Inca Empire - Peru - Tawantinsuyu. It explains how they obtained their accomplishments and their way of rulling such vast land.
I love it!!
I got the book about a year ago, I'm still rereading it again and again.
I purchased it used, it arrived on time and as it was described.
Thanks.

I fell in love with Peru!!! I want to learn all there is to know about it and what better than those that have explored it and studied it before I did. I feel enriched with Incan knowledge already...

Format: Hardcover
The Inca culture is a very great sourece for the human being. But until now we do not know it very much. We need more and more information to know the true Inca. How ? The Inca is not only the Inca trail or the Machu Picchu, nor the stone only, The trational food, the music, the festive, their language (not the Spanish) ,all of those are the true Inca culture. But we do not see any one investigate it. What is pachamama? It mean the origin of the earth,the source of the earth,the mother of the earth. Where is the Inca now? We need to know the reeason why it disappeared. Maybe the answers will save our future.
