Rediscovering Machu Picchu
Monday, June 20, 2011
Mark Adams describes the discovery of Machu Picchu and his own investigation into allegations that the Yale professor who discovered the ruins, Hiram Bingham III, was not the hero he’s made out to be. Turn Right at Machu Picchu: Rediscovering the Lost City One Step at a Time retraces Adams’s journey to Machu Picchu, with a crusty, antisocial Australian survivalist and several Quechua-speaking, coca-chewing mule tenders as his guides. The book will be released June 30.
