Machu Picchu, the famed Inca site in Peru high in the Andes, is one of those talismanic places that everyone dreams of visiting. The beauty of this extraordinary place is celebrated here in the striking photography of Barry Brukoff whose images evoke the mystery and spiritual atmosphere of this sacred lost city. Interwoven with the images is the epic poem by Pablo Neruda entitled 'The Heights of Machu Picchu' which has been described as one of his greatest works. In addition, distinguished novelist Isabel Allende contributes a prologue.
The book is a bilingual edition and noted translator Stephen Kessler has created a sparkling new English translation of Neruda's Spanish poem.
