Praise for Turn Right at Machu Picchu

"[An] engaging and sometimes hilarious book."--The New York Times Book Review

"A serious (and seriously funny) travelogue, a smart and tightly written history, and an investigative report into perhaps the greatest archaeological discovery in the last century."--NationalGeographic.com

"An engaging, informative guide to all things Inca."--Entertainment Weekly

"Adams deftly weaves together Inca history, Bingham's story, and his own less heroic escapade....Those favoring a quirkier retelling [of Bingham's exploits] will relish Mr. Adam's wry, revealing romp through the Andes."--The Wall Street Journal

"Quite funny and unpretentiously well informed...The perfect way to acknowledge the lost city's one hundredth birthday."--Christian Science Monitor ("Editor's Choice")

"[An] entirely delightful book."--The Washington Post

"With a healthy sense of humor...Adams unearths a fascinating story, transporting his readers back to 1911, when Yale professor Hiram Bingham III hiked the Andes and stumbled upon on of South America's most miraculous and cloistered meccas."--NPR.org
