The author, an acclaimed documentary filmmaker and explorer, expertly weaves accounts of his own discoveries and brushes with danger with the history of those who preceded him—including the explorer Hiram Bingham, who discovered Machu Picchu- the twentieth century South American photographer, Martín Chambi- the poet Pablo Neruda- and the Spanish conquistadores who destroyed the Inca civilization—and the eccentric characters he meets on his travels.
