By Brien Foerster
Price: $4.95 USD. Words: 23,810. Language: English. Published: April 8, 2011. Category: Nonfiction
I wrote this book because as a frequent visitor to Cuzco, and the Inca world, there are no economically priced and pocket sized Inca history books available in Peru or in fact anywhere in English. The book covers the complete history of the Inca from their roots, to their downfall as the result of the Spanish conquest. Many color photos and maps guide the reader through the story of the Inca.

I wrote this book after 5 years of exploring and studying the Inca and the sacred sites of Cusco and the Sacred Valley of Peru. There was no good guidebook that I could find explaining what the famous and not so famous sites meant, who built them, and when. As a professional tour guide of the area, I feel it is important that visitors have a pocket sized guide like this.
