Realm of the Incas
Revised Edition*
Max Milligan

This lavishly illustrated and highly informative volume is the definitive book on the Inca region of Peru. It is a breathtaking visual journey with lively and detailed text, from the sacred snowpeaks of the Andes down to the virgin rainforest of Amazonia. Celebrating the extraordinary diversity of the area through stunning photographs, it covers every aspect of life, from natural history to magical festivals. Lost cities, bizarre rituals

and stunning landscapes surround Machu Picchu and Cuzco 'the archaeological capital of South America' while the jungle below in Manu National Park hosts the greatest biodiversity on the planet. Realm of the Incas is, quite simply, the culmination of Max Milligan's fifteen year love affair with this fabled land.

"It is fantastic! Breathtaking." - Matthew Parris, Author of Inca Kola

"A stunning visual odyssey - beautifully conceived." - New Scientist

"An astonishing photographic collection" Condé Nast Traveller – Book of the Month

"Illuminating text.....Milligan provides rich perspective” - Houston Chronicle

"Milligan's exceptional photography...not ordinary coffee-table fodder" - The Times - Top 10 Travel Books of the Year

"It tells people much about Peru and will be a dazzling reminder should they visit" - John Hemming, Author of Conquest of the Incas

Startling images are juxtaposed with the humorous. Nothing escapes his acute eye” - Evening Standard

Milligan’s passion informs every intricately researched page - fascinating on many levels” - IPC Magazines

*Realm of the Incas was a huge success in its first edition, published in October 2001. Nominated by Condé Nast Traveller as Book of the Month, and named in The Times Top 10 Travel Books of the Year, it was also nominated for two awards (pipped for both by Earth from the Air).

Selling out of the 3,500 first edition in only eight months, it became a victim of Harper Collins’ decision to close its illustrated division. Second-hand copies have been selling on Amazon for double the cover price. Repeated bookshop and wholesaler orders have led to the publication of this revised edition.
