For the first time in three volumns, here is the splendor and magnificence of
the Azetcs, Mayas, and the Incas - the three pre-Columbian peoples whose
accomplishments once rivaled the culture and civilizations of Europe itself.
These are books to be treasured by all lovers of archaeology,
by all who stir at tales of exploration and adventure,
by all who thrill to the romance of vanished civilizations
re-created through the power of an author's knowledge and insight.
Here are tales of ruthless conquest - Cortes is Mexico, Montejo in the
Yucatan peninsula, Pizarro in Peru. Here are accounts of imperial
princes and their stately cities, from the Aztec capital of Tenochtitlan
to the Inca fortress of Machu Picchu. And here are the strand and
wonderful beliefs, customs, dances, and religious rites of three mature
American civilizations that time and the hand of man were almost to
blot out from human memory.
The eventual rediscovery of these Sun Kingdoms, as pioneers
such as Humboldt, Stephens, and Catherwood
penetrated to the lost cities in the jungles,
provides the rewarding fascination of a true-to-life detective story.
And it is a story whose solution, in Victor von Hagen's expert hands,
brings alive the very stuff of which daily life in the Americas was made
before the Europeans came.
