Although written in 1971 in the last days of people who seem to find the time away from real life to partake of the 'Grand Tour', this book is an excellent account of travel in the Andes. Colourful descriptions of the Quecha and Aymara peoples with an eye for painting a picture of the mountains, the flora and the fauna. Read this book after you come back from the Inca trail and you will be transported back to your holiday !!!
