Suggested reading list

All available through and / or http://

The Incas, People of the Sun
Carmen Bernard
A pocket-size encyclopedia in the acclaimed "Discoveries" series, this jewel of a book features hundreds of archival drawings and photographs, a chronology and long excerpts from the journals of early explorers. It's a guide to the ancient monuments, daily life of the Incas, and history of exploration.

People of the Andes
James B. Richardson III
A comprehensive, up-to-date and illustrated introduction to the culture and archaeology of the Andes by a widely recognized expert. Richardson brings clarity to a complex subject, focusing on the role played by geography and climate in shaping cultural development. This excellent book places the extraordinary empire of the Incas (greater than that of Rome) in its historical and cultural context

Discovering the Inca Ice Maiden, My Adventures on Ampato
Johan Reinhard
In 1995, while climbing the Andean volcano Ampato, Johan Reinhard literally stumbled across the mummified remains of a 14-year-old Inca girl, sacrificed to the gods in about AD 1470. This book, illustrated with National Geography’s hallmark color photos, is Reinhard's engaging, fact-filled story of that discovery and the so-called "Ice Maiden's" history. It's just morbid enough to fascinate pre-teens (and their more squeamish parents), and it is sure to excite young would-be archaeologists.
