The Incas 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
JGolomb More than 1 year ago
The Incas is a very detailed and enlightening view into the world of the Incas. The book is well researched and and appropriate for anyone looking to go beyond the tales of Machu Picchu and the Spanish Conquest. D'Altroy uses a wealth of resources to detail the lives and existence of the Incas - day-to-day living, military and family structures, economy, etc. The writing is comfortable enough for even the non-academic. Highly recommended.
