For instance, on page 7, is a photo of that focuses on two of the mayors from the Cuzco area, with their two hats, distinctive poncho designs, and silver-bound staffs of office. On page 35 is another man in exactly the same costume, identified as an Ecuadorian, which is wrong. Even in the Peruvian provinces near Cuzco, men would wear a very different and distinctive costume; in Ecuador, entirely different.
On the map on page 43, 'Totonac' is misspelled as 'Totopac.' One error of many.
On page 30, 'charro' is said to be a 'Mexican rodeo'; in fact, it would be called a 'charreria,' and the participants are called 'charros.'
Also, on page 30, the Tarahumara are said to live in 'southeast Chiapas' - nope, they live in the state of Chihuahua, hundreds of miles away.
The two double-page spreads (pages 21-22, 44-45) of 15 smaller photos each are especially full of wrong identifications.
By the time I reached page 45, so much information that I knew was wrong had shown up that I wouldn't have trusted the author to tell me what year it is. Finishing the book seemed useless because there was no way to distinguish between correct and incorrect information, So I took it back to the library and was very pleased I hadn't bought a copy.
