Great original source by a 17th century Inca noble. The book is repetitive and awkwardly written but he is such a passionate and quirky leader of his people that I assigned it to my students in colonial Latin America this year. In the future I will assign a much smaller segment. The drawings really add a lot. He hates the Spanish influence on the Indians and their exploitation but sees the King of Spain as their legitimate monarch and is a devout Christian.
