Going to Peru and need some additional reading? Already been to Peru and would like some material to reinforce those connections you’ve made as a traveler? Below I’ve complied the titles I read prior to my recent adventure to the Land of the Incas. They are full of sensory details, cultural references, environmental relationships, historical facts and more.
I hope you’ll find these as insightful as I did. I encourage they be used as supplemental reading for your formal destination research. Remember, a wise traveler is an educated one.
Death in the Andes by Mario Vargas Llosa
Turn Right at Machu Picchu by Mark Adams
The Last Days of the Incas by Kim Macquarie
