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
