Reviews

An Indigenous Peruvian boy grew up in the Andean highlands, visiting the tombs of his ancestors. This boy was Julio C. Tello, and he became the most important Indigenous Peruvian archaeologist of all time. In this beautiful and well-informed book, you will find the story of his perseverance and success. Tello fought against many obstacles to realize his dreams. Dr. Henry Tantaleán, Universidad Nacional Mayor de San Marcos, Lima, Peru
This is a wonderful, lovingly-illustrated portrait of Julio C. Tello and his remarkable career. It will inspire young people to go out and make discoveries of their own, regardless of their backgrounds. As the founder of modern Peruvian archaeology, Tello is justly famous in Peru. This book will bring awareness of his great accomplishments to readers in North America. Dr. Richard L. Burger, Professor of Anthropology, Yale University
