Item description for Peru (Exploring Countries of the World) by Mario Polia...

From the awe-inspiring ruins of Machu Picchu to the bustling metropolis of Cuzco—the country's capital—from dense subequatorial rainforests to the snowy peaks of the Andes Mountains, this volume transports readers to a land with a tumultuous history and deeply rooted spiritual legacy. Armchair travelers explore ancient archaeological sites deep in the jungle, travel on the highest railway line in the world, and admire the meticulous construction of mysterious cities built of stone. With its accessible text and vibrant photographs, this book provides an excellent introduction to the fascinating country of Peru.
On behalf of the Ministry of Foreign Trade and the Centro Studi e Ricerche Ligabue of Venice, archaeologist and ethnographer Mario Polia is the head of a research program in Peru on native traditions. He is also curator of the Anthropology Museum of Leonessa in Rieti. Winner of the Paolo Toschi Award in 1999 for field research, he has lectured on Medical Anthropology at the Catholic University of Lima.

Good Book from few options  Apr 28, 2008
The book overall is good, with great photos.
However there are very few quality books to choose from on Peru, and this book could be updated with more current info and photos.
