Extra titelinformatie
On July 24, 1911, Yale professor Hiram Bingham famously stumbled upon Machu Picchu while scaling the Andes. Later he was accused of stealing artifacts and, ultimately, of stealing credit for the find. To get to the truth of the matter, Adams, a travel magazine editor who had More...never actually slept in a tent, decided on an adventure of his own: he would reconstruct Bingham's trip and reassess what Machu Picchu means today. Sounds like fun with some significant insight; for travel and history fans.
