A Brief History Of The Incas: From Rise, Through Reign, To Ruin
Price: $4.95 USD. Words: 23,810. Language: English. Published: April 8, 2011. Categories: Nonfiction » Travel » By region, Nonfiction » History » South American
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.
