Machu Picchu Revealed (Hardcover)

By (author): Ruth M. Wright

From the author of the bestselling Machu Picchu Guide -
book comes a jaw-droppingly gorgeous photographic
journey through the incredible feat of architecture, art, and
design that is Machu Picchu, one of the New Seven
Wonders of the World. Wright s pictures and captions
guide you gently through the well-preserved ruins, revealing
their expansive harmony with the noble mountainscape
that surrounds them, and at times pulling in close to
observe the intricate details and ingenuities characteristic
of the Inca who built them.
Ruth M. Wright wove a thirty-year fascination with Machu Picchu
into an authorized investigation when she and her husband, Ken
Wright of Wright Water Engineers, were granted a permit in 1994
from the Instituto Nacional de Cultura de Peru to conduct ongoing
studies of the site. She lives in Boulder.

I first visited Cuzco and Machu Picchu as part of a six month trip throughout South America in 1976.  That experience was great.  I saw fantastic places, worked through challenging situations, and learned a lot about myself through experiencing other cultures, the people and their history.  And, I got to spend time and learn from some very interesting and broadening fellow travelers from all over the world.

Wanting my family to experience some of what I did, we traveled to Cuzco and Machu Picchu.  Machu Picchu is one of the “Seven Wonders of World” and is a truly amazing place.  Cuzco is a great colonial city with wonderful Incan and Spanish history.  This was to be our first family trip to a developing country.

I wrote this book when, after our trip, a friend commented “I’ve always wanted to go there, but was intimidated and felt it was too expensive.”  Given that kick, I wrote this ebook.  It answers everything I wanted to know when planning our trip but could not practically find in guide books or on the web.  And, I added tips and experiences learned from the trip that will simplify your trip, making it safer, less expensive and more enjoyable.

Pick it up.  It is an amazing adventure and you can do it.
