Conquest of the Incas by John Hemming, Now Available on E-Book

Some of you will remember back in April 2011 we ran a trip led by World-renowned historian and author Dr. John Hemming, The Trip of the Century. Well, for those of you with kindles and the like, Dr. Hemming has recently released a new e-book version of his captivating and informative book The Conquest of the Incas.

In the new edition Hemming successfully builds upon his already evocative and highly acclaimed account of one of the most exciting conquests known to history.  We at Aracari believe that no other work brings to light so brilliantly the determination, tragedy, and perseverance that defined the Spanish conquest of the expansive Inca Empire. We feel it is a must-read prior to or after a trip to the very heart of the Inca Empire.

This digital version, available to purchase on amazon.com, includes many fantastic features: extensive revisions and updates of the texts, bibliography, and notes, additions of the latest theories and discoveries, and a new appendix about recent discoveries of Inca ruins in Vilcabamba, located beyond Machu Picchu. Below are just a few of the positive remarks attesting to the brilliance of Dr. Hemming’s latest release:

The Conquest of the Incas is an extraordinary book. In it, rigorous historical research and profound analysis combine with stylistic elegance to produce a work that conveys to us, in all its richness and diversity, the tragic and fabulous history of the Inca realm; it is as delightful to read as the best novels.” – Mario Vargas Llosa, Peruvian, Nobel Laureate in Literature

“Simply put, The Conquest of the Incas by John Hemming is the bible for historians and archaeologists studying the final days of the Inca.  There is no other book which is even in the same class.  For South American scholars, visitors to Peru, or any adventurer, it is an unmatched must-read book. The publication of a new e-version insures that it will continue to inspire readers well into the future.”    – Professor Brian S. Bauer, University of Illinois at Chicago, leading Inca archaeologist

Our connection with Dr. Hemming doesn’t stop at an avid interest in the Incas. In April of 2011, a group of privileged Aracari guests had the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to travel with Dr. John Hemming on our Trip of the Century. Celebrating our 15th Anniversary along with the centenary of Machu Picchu’s scientific discovery, the trip was a unique opportunity for guests to learn first-hand from the world authority on Inca history himself, and the response was fabulous! Just have a look at the photos and comments posted by our guests on the following blog article: “I hope that the joy and good cheer last forever.” Aracari’s Trip of the Century
