"One of the most compelling contemporary novelists." INDEPENDENT TO THE LAST CITY is set deep in the Peruvian Andes, where five ill-prepared travellers - men and women with different values, temperaments and motives - find themselves trekking one of the most exacting and beautiful regions on Earth. They confront not only their relationships with one another, but the enigmas of the country's past, the dangers of its present, and the limitations of their own minds and bodies. The "lost city" of their destination is Vilcabamba, last refuge of the Inca against the Spaniards, subsumed by jungle for four hundred years. This will be a journey which may temper or destroy them. The power of Colin Thubron's imagination and the beauty of his descriptive prose combine to make TO THE LAST CITY a novel which can be read on several levels.
