"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."
"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!"
