About the Author

TEQUILA OIL was serialised by BBC Radio 4 as their Book of the Week. Hugh Thomson has led many research expeditions to Peru, about which he has written an acclaimed series of books: THE WHITE ROCK and its sequel, COCHINEAL RED. He also edited Hiram Bingham's classic account of the discovery of Machu Picchu, LOST CITY OF THE INCAS. An expedition to a usually inaccessible part of the Himalayas and the source of a legend resulted in NANDA DEVI: A JOURNEY TO THE LAST SANCTUARY. He is also a film-maker and has won many awards for his documentaries, which include INDIAN JOURNEYS WITH WILLIAM DALRYMPLE, and DANCING IN THE STREET: A ROCK AND ROLL HISTORY. He lives in Oxfordshire.
