Kim MacQuarrie is a writer, a four-time Emmy-winning documentary filmmaker, and an anthropologist. He is the author of four books on Peru and lived in that country for five years. During that time, MacQuarrie lived with a recently-contacted tribe of indigenous Amazonians, called the Yora. It was MacQuarrie's experience filming a nearby group of indigenous people, whose ancestors still remembered their contacts with the Inca Empire, that ultimately led him to investigate and then to write his latest book, "The Last Days of the Incas."
A History Book Club and Military Book Club selection, the book was also chosen by the Kiriyama Prize Committee as a "notable book" for 2008 and as an "Outstanding Academic Title" by Choice. Currently FX Channel is developing "The Last Days of the Incas" as a 13-part scripted television series. MacQuarrie's new book, "Adventures in the Andes: On the Trail of Bandits, Heroes, and Revolutionaries," will be published by Simon & Schuster in June, 2015, and is about a 4,500-mile journey, from Colombia to Tierra del Fuego, along the spine of the Andes.
