1 Hugh Thomson The White Rock An Exploration of the Inca Heartland
The Overlook Press 2003 1585673552 / 9781585673551 Stated First Edition Hardcover As New in Fine+ dust jacket; Remainder mark at the bottom, DJ with slight shelf wear. 
9.34 x 1.26 x6.32; 316 pages; This book took 20 years to research and write. Hugh Thomson, excited and awed upon hearing that an ancient Peruvian city named Llactapata, was found and then lost again to the jungle , sought out to satisfy his curiosity. In his research into this and other ancient Peruvian cities, Thomson finds and recounts for us the history and nature of the Incas, the decline of a once grand culture and the fascination of modern day historians and archaelogist s with the Incas. Thomson immersed himself in the ancient sites braving danger and interviewed various historians, archaelogists and Peruvian native experts. That this is Thomson's life work is apparent in the love and fascination in his writing voice. The Incas left no written history but because of Thomson's work, we are treated to knowledge about an ancient world.
