Book Overview
First published over fifty years ago, this is the story of the discovery of one of the world's most famous ancient sites - Machu Picchu. With much literary flair and in the overall style of an adventure novel, Bingham recalls his quest to find the second Inca capital in the remote areas to the west of Cuzco. The early chapters set the background and discuss who the Incas were, their origins, their buildings and architecture and history. A natural story-teller, this illustrated edition also includes some of Bingham's own photographs.
