Cut Stones and Crossroads : A Journey in the Two Worlds of Peru

Description

Travelling through Peru, tracing the history of the Incas from their royal cities of Cusco and Machu Picchu to their mythic origin in Lake Titicaca, Ronald Wright explores a land of contrasts - between Indian and Spanish, past and present, coastal desert and snow-crowned Andes. 

Yet Wright is equally interested in the chance encounters of the road.  With admiration, humour and a wry anger, he brings to life the complex culture of an ancient land seeking its place in the modern world.  

'... a book for the committed traveller, who wants the real story behind superficial images and impressions.' New York Times
