Realm of the Incas
By

Rating
This illustrated and informative volume on the Inca region of Peru charts the breathtaking journey from the sacred snowpeaks of the Andes down to the virgin rainforest of Amazonia. Celebrating the extraordinary diversity of the area through stunning photographs, it covers every aspect of life, from natural history to magical festivals. Lost cities, bizarre rituals and stunning landscapes surround Machu Picchu and Cuzco 'the archaeological capital of South America' while the jungle below in Manu National Park hosts the greatest biodiversity on the planet. Realm of the Incas is, quite simply, the culmination of Max Milligan's fifteen year love affair with this fabled land.
