KIRKUS REVIEW

The remarkable world of the Incas comes to life in this reconstruction made from a few written accounts and the discoveries of archaeologists. How the Incas created their magnificent cities and temples, how they evolved an intricate system of law and government, what feats were accomplished in road and town building, the daily occupations and ways of life of the inhabitants are fully discussed. Against this background, the brutal and sadistic invasion of the Spaniards, their wanton destruction of a whole civilization has strong dramatic impact.
