The Last Days of the Incas

≨ The Best The Last Days of the Incas ⊘ Author Kim MacQuarrie ⋢ ≨ The Best The Last Days of the Incas ⊘ Author Kim MacQuarrie ⋢ Starred Review. With vivid and energetic prose, Emmy Awardwinner and author MacQuarrie From the Andes to the re creates the 16th century struggle for what would become modern day Peru The Incas ruled a 2,500mile long empire, but Spanish explorers, keen to enrich the crown and spread the Catholic Church, eventually destroyed Inca society MacQuarrie, who writes with just the right amount of drama After the interpreter finished delivering the speech, silence once again gripped the square , is to be commended for giving a balanced account of those events This long and stylish book doesn t end with the final 1572 collapse of the Incas Fast forwarding to the 20th century, MacQuarrie tells the surprisingly fascinating story of scholars evolving interpretations of Inca remains In 1911, a young Yale professor of Latin American history named Hiram Bingham identified Machu Picchu as the nerve center of the empire Few questioned Bingham s theory until after his death in 1956 in the 1960s Gene Savoy discovered the real Inca center of civilization, Vilcabamba Although MacQuarrie dedicates just a few chapters to modern research, the archeologists who made the key discoveries emerge as well developed characters, and the tale of digging up the empire is as riveting as the familiar history of Spanish conquest Bw illus., maps May 29 Copyright Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc All rights reserved.The Incas were members of the group of Quechuan peoples of Peru, who established an empire from northern Ecuador to central Chile before the Spanish conquest MacQuarrie reminds his readers that nearly 500 years ago, 168 Spaniards arrived in what is now Peru and collided with an Incan empire of 10 million people The author, who lived in Peru for five years, chronicles the adventures of Hiram Bingham, who, in 1911, discovered Machu Picchu and believed it was the Incan capital MacQuarrie also recounts the search by Gene Savoy, the American explorer who found Vicabamba, the true capital He describes the adventures of other conquistadors and puppet kings, the rebellion of 1535, and other military attempts to conquer the Indians MacQuarrie, a four time Emmy Award winning filmmaker, researched Spanish and Incan chronicles The result is a first rate reference work of ambitious scope that will most likely stand as the definitive account of these people
