Book Description

Inca Land: Explorations in the Highlands of Peru by Hiram Bingham. - 1922 The following pages represent some of the results of four journeys into the interior of Peru and also many explorations into the labyrinth of early writings which treat of the Incas and their Land.

Although my travels covered only a part of southern Peru, they took me into every variety of climate and forced me to camp at almost every altitude at which men have constructed houses or erected tents in the Western Hemisphere—from sea level up to 21,703 feet.

It has been my lot to cross bleak Andean passes, where there are heavy snowfalls and low temperatures, as well as to wend my way through gigantic canyons into the dense jungles of the Amazon Basin, as hot and humid a region as exists anywhere in the world. The Incas lived in a land of violent contrasts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Always the Unexpected 31 Aug. 2007
By B. F. Berry - Published on
A trip through Peru nearly a century ago that is as compelling now as when Bingham wrote the book. We are always looking for something we know is 'out there'. Hiram Bingham not only found what he was searching for, but the added surprise experience of seeing the breath taking beauty of Macchu Picchu. The reader is not lost in the words on a page, but lost in the Sacred Valley, the spectacular mountains, the indigenous peoples and the wonder of explorers such as Bingham.

2.0 out of 5 stars Reprint of earlier book? 8 July 2007
By C Larsen - Published on
This looks like a reprint of the original work by Bingham about his "discovery" of Machu Picchu. I read the original 40 years ago, and it sparked a lasting desire to go see this place for myself. I finally made it, and it is all I imagined it to be. If this is, indeed, a reprinting of Bingham's original expeditions, they are facinating period pieces full of the hardships of exploring before tourism, basic amenities, travel health care, much less maps. Machu Picchu was, of course, not lost to the Inca descendants, only to the White educated explorers from afar, so Bingham didn't really "discover" it, but he certainly publicized it and Yale helped!
