Machu Picchu: The story of the amazing Inkas and their city in the clouds

Now in paperback: The story about the rise of the Inkas and the building of a great city, Machu Picchu, set in a remote, inaccessible area of the high Andes.

The story of the rise of the Inkas and the building of the great city of Machu Picchu is described in this book. The city is as astonishing as were its builders. Set in a remote, inaccessible area of the high Andes, this breathtaking city was never found by the Spanish Conquistadors and remains an untouched example of Inka genius.

Wonders of the World series

The winner of numerous awards, this series is renowned for Elizabeth Mann's ability to convey adventure and excitement while revealing technical information in engaging and easily understood language. The illustrations are lavishly realistic and accurate in detail but do not ignore the human element. Outstanding in the genre, these books are sure to bring even the most indifferent young reader into the worlds of history, geography, and architecture.

"One of the ten best non-fiction series for young readers."
