'A superb travel writer...vivid historical imagination...extraordinarily perceptive...a literary master craftsman.' - Dervla Murphy 'Ronald Wright is a superb travel writer with a vivid historical imagination. The soundness and range of Wright's knowledge..weave a fascinating though melancholy tapestry. Extraordinarily perceptive.' - TLS 'The best modern travel book on Peru that I know.' - John Hemming Ronald Wright has created the very best travel book about Peru, for he has immersed himself in the music and language, as well as the history, politics and monuments of the indigenous Andean cultures of South America, in a way that no other travel writer has yet managed. We get to share in his personal discoveries through the humour and good fellowship of the road, full of entertaining misadventures. But there is never any doubt that there is an ultimate purpose to these journeys: a passionate need to bear witness to the truth about the past, after centuries of persecution by an alien ruling class. So through the dense clouds of historical tragedy, Wright excavates hope that a revival of pride and dignity in Andean culture is possible.
