About the Author
Jorge Luis Delgado, born in the highlands near Lake Titicaca, Peru, is of Aymara Incan heritage. His mother is from a family of herders and his father was a teacher. Growing up in a large family in Puno, Peru, Jorge Luis began carrying bags for people in Puno to earn extra money for the family. After he graduated with superior grades from high school, Jorge Luis continued in this tradition and chose to be a tour guide. Early in his career, he concentrated on being very scientific as he worked in the area of the Sacred Valley, including Machu Picchu, and the area surrounding Lake Titicaca. Today, Jorge Luis is known around the world as a knowledgeable guide of the Sacred Valley and the High Plateau of the Andes. His knowledge spans the culture, the traditions, and the spiritual heritage of his vibrant Inca world. Jorge Luis now has his own tour company, Kontiki Tours, and is currently building his third Taypikala Hotel. Most important, Jorge Luis is a "chacaruna," a bridge person, who assists people in connecting to their spiritual self within their own traditions. Jorge Luis lives in Puno with his wife and three children.
MaryAnn Male, PhD and her husband, Theron, first traveled to Peru with a small group in August, 2000 and met Jorge Luis, their guide. It was on their second trip to the Andes that MaryAnn and Theron asked Jorge Luis to share his wealth of knowledge with the world in a book that would present an authentic Inca voice about his beautiful heritage. They traveled with Jorge Luis, met many of his teachers, and began recording his thoughts and his celebration of life. Since 1985 MaryAnn Male has been a practicing licensed psychologist with a specialty in trauma response.

My own account of a Peruvian trip is at http://www.philmorse.com/Peru
The detailed descriptions of the land, the people and their crafts have encouraged me to continue studying this fascinating culture. I will make the journey both in body and spirit. I look forward to awakening the Spirituality within myself.
This book was not exactly what I expected, however it lit the fire for me & now I cannot wait to visit & to learn more. Instead of the usual tourist attractions, I now plan to expand my visit (and of course travel with Jorge Delgado!) and perhaps collect wonderful textiles and handicrafts. I'll write more later upon my return!!!
My only request for Jorge is: Next time more pictures, maps & suggested places to visit!(in color!!)
I highly recommend this book to anyone considering a trip to Peru who wants to see more than just monuments of the past. This book is a wonderful, easy to read, story of one man's journey of growing into his connection with the past and how that past is still impacting how he lives his live today.
A Great Prelude to Your Trip to Peru
