Item Details

A process of assimilation and cultural layering makes Incan mythology a rich and complex brew of Andean folklore, history, and belief. This book serves up a sumptuous offering of Incan and other Andean myths, and sheds light on cultures that often remain shrouded in mystery to this day. These myths and legends are placed within a context of history, archaeology, religion, folk beliefs, and culture, that both explains and enhances their meaning. Dozens of full-color images illuminate the rich storytelling.
