The Incas: People of the Sun Reviews


  • Glenn D. Robinson

    Enjoyable small photo book that gives a brief description of Peru, the Incas, the Nascas and other groups in Peru with emphasis of the time of the Spanish conquest It is too small of a book to go into great details, but gives wonderful oversight and ends with a section of historic letters from the 1500 s up to Hiram Bingham s rediscovery of Manchu Pichu Excellent photos 4x6, so it is a small book, but good for an overview This was helpful in preparing me for a trip to Peru.

  • Y. Scott

    I wanted to learn history and culture of Inca before I traveled to Peru, but I was desperately busy This is the only book I completely finished before I left USA, and it was really helpful When I visited many places, I actually knew a lot than other visitors.I highly recommend this book before your trip to Peru.

    A very readable history of the Inca people The book is useful if you are 15 or 50 I thought the documents at the end of the book was a big plus The book is compact and can be taken on your trip as a reference.
