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, sp it is a small book, but good for an overview.
This unassuming little book turned out to be the best of the Incan history books I borrowed from the library a few weeks ago. A concise & straightforward history with LOTS of art that isn't in the other books, and includes an appendix of long primary source material.
An informative book about the Inca civilization with a lot of photos; also copies of some source documents. I'm glad I read this before our Peru trip; hubby is reading it also.
I've read this book to get the quick idea of the Inca before I visit Peru. The book is very concise and easy to read.

A perfect book for a tourist.
Didn't finish it. It's a National Geographic type book rather than academic. I might pick it up again sometime.
