My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Anyone who has been to or is going to Machu Picchu should read this book. It is a well written, humorous journey around many of the most important sites from the Incan Empire following the footsteps of the man credited for it’s “rediscovery”, Hiram Bingham. You won’t get bogged down in science or history, but you may be energized (like me) to learn more. Mr. Adams writing style is similar to Bill Bryson’s and is very accessible. I thoroughly enjoyed the book.
