The best books on Machu Picchu

Judith Turner
 
The Last Days of the Incas
The Last Days of the Incas
"This is a beautifully written and haunting book on the conquest of the Inca Empire and on the history and discovery of Machu Picchu. It is one of those rare kinds of books that, once read, you will never forget! A sprawling, epic story amazingly told."
Machu Picchu: Exploring an Ancient Sacred Center (WORLD HERITAGE AND MONUMENT SERIES)
Machu Picchu: Exploring an Ancient Sacred Center (WORLD HERITAGE AND MONUMENT SERIES)
"An excellent little book by a well-known archaeologist on the religious aspects of Machu Picchu and the surrounding region."
Machu Picchu: A Civil Engineering Marvel
Machu Picchu: A Civil Engineering Marvel
"An interesting book by an American engineer on the hydraulic systems the Incas used at Machu Picchu."
The Machu Picchu Guidebook: A Self-Guided Tour
The Machu Picchu Guidebook: A Self-Guided Tour
"A good guide book by the above hydraulic engineer's wife!"
Lost City of the Incas (Phoenix Press)
Lost City of the Incas (Phoenix Press)
"The discovery of Machu Picchu in its discoverer's own words (Hiram Bingham). His many theories were disproven and the anthropology is woefully out of date, but an interesting read nevertheless."
Inca Land: Explorations in the Highlands of Peru
Inca Land: Explorations in the Highlands of Peru
"Hiram Bingham's first book on Peru, circa 1922. He wrote "Lost City of the Incas" much later, while he was in his 70s in 1948."
Machu Picchu: Unveiling the Mystery of the Incas
Machu Picchu: Unveiling the Mystery of the Incas
"Perhaps the best coffee-table-style book (in English) on Machu Picchu. It accompanied the traveling Machu Picchu/Yale University tour in the United States. Peru is still trying to get the 5000* artifacts Bingham took from Machu Picchu back!"
