Book summary

A special illustrated edition of Hiram Bingham's classic work captures all the magnificence and mystery of the amazing sites he uncovered. In the earliest days of the 20th century, Bingham ventured into the wild and then unknown country of the Eastern Peruvian Andes. In 1911, he came upon the fabulous Inca city that ultimately made him famous: Machu Picchu. And his achievement did not end there, because in the space of one short season he went on to discover two more lost cities: Vitcos, where the last of the Emperors was assassinated, and another settlement buried deep below the cloud-forest of the jungle.
