9780749929930: The Last Days of the Incas

Kim MacQuarrie lived in Peru for five years and became fascinated by the Incas and the history of the Spanish conquest. Drawing on both native and Spanish chronicles, he vividly describes the dramatic story of the conquest, with all its savagery and suspense. This authoritative, exciting history is among the most powerful and important accounts of the culture of the South American Indians and the Spanish Conquest.

From the Author:

A Kiriyama Prize "Notable Book" and a History Book Club and Military Book Club selection

From the Back Cover:

"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 GeographicSociety, 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 partsof the Inca Empire. "The 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."

Descripción Little, Brown Book Group, United Kingdom, 2008. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The epic story of the fall of the Inca Empire to Spanish conquistador Francisco Pizarro in the aftermath of a bloody civil war, and the recent discovery of the lost guerrilla capital of the Incas, Vilcabamba, by three American explorers.In 1532, the fifty-four-year-old Spanish conquistador Francisco Pizarro led a force of 167 men, including his four brothers, to the shores of Peru. Unbeknownst to the Spaniards, the Inca rulers of Peru had just fought a bloody civil war in which the emperor Atahualpa had defeated his brother Huascar. Pizarro and his men soon clashed with Atahualpa and a huge force of Inca warriors at the Battle of Cajamarca. Despite being outnumbered by more than two hundred to one, the Spaniards prevailed-due largely to their horses, their steel armour and swords, and their tactic of surprise. They captured and imprisoned Atahualpa. Although the Inca emperor paid an enormous ransom in gold, the Spaniards executed him anyway. The following year, the Spaniards seized the Inca capital of Cuzco, completing their conquest of the largest native empire the New World has ever known. Peru was now a Spanish colony, and the conquistadors were wealthy beyond their wildest dreams.But the Incas did not submit willingly. A young Inca emperor, the brother of Atahualpa, soon led a massive rebellion against the Spaniards, inflicting heavy casualties and nearly wiping out the conquerors. Eventually, however, Pizarro and his men forced the emperor to abandon the Andes and flee to the Amazon. There, he established a hidden capital, called Vilcabamba-only recently rediscovered by a trio of colorful American explorers. Although the Incas fought a deadly, thirty-six-year-long guerrilla war, the Spanish ultimately captured the last Inca emperor and vanquished the native resistance.
