"This is a wonderful book about one of the most epic struggles of history, a conquest that transformed a continent."---- Wade Davis, Anthropologist and Explorer-in-Residence National Geographic Society, and author of One River
"A colorful, superbly crafted historical narrative that masterfully demonstrates that when cultures collide, unforeseen and tragic consequences follow....also a memorable adventure story, revealing the modern Indiana Jones-type characters that unearthed, and continue to discover, lost parts of the Inca Empire. Last Days of the Incas is historical writing at its best."--Broughton Coburn, author of Everest: Mountain Without Mercy
"The Last Days of the Incas surprises, delivers history, and reads like a great yarn. I've read yards of books on the Incas, but this one took me out of the classroom and into that long-lost world."--Keith Bellows, Editor in Chief, National Geographic Traveler
"The story of the European conquest of the fascinating and fabulously rich empire of the Incas is one of history's most engaging and tragic episodes...Thanks to The Last Days of the Incas, Kim MacQuarrie's superbly written new treatment of the subject, it is now accessible to the much broader audience it deserves."--Vincent Lee, author of Forgotten Vilcabamba
"In this thrilling informative work...MacQuarrie also manages to spin the oft-told story of the discovery of Machu Picchu into narrative gold."--Entertainment Weekly
