Synopsis

Inca Discover the Culture & Geography of a Lost Civilization with 25 Projects by Lawrence G. Kovacs

Revealing legends and legacies, Inca: Discover the Culture and Geography of a Lost Civilization with 25 Projects offers engaging insight into the continent-sprawling ancient Inca culture. The text and activities invite learners on a journey along the Inca Trail. They'll visit the city of Cuzco and the majestic Machu Picchu, built on a jagged ridge thousands of feet above the Urubamba River. Kids will learn about cultural beliefs, rituals, scientific advances, and languages. They'll create Salar de Uyuni salt crystals and build a tropical cloud forest. This captivating educational tool also features unique illustrations, informative sidebars, fun-fact questions, and vocabulary that will interest readers from start to finish.

Reviews

Dr. Tamara L. Bray, Professor of Anthropology, Wayne State University This book provides a fun and well-illustrated introduction to the Inca and the Andean region of South America that they ruled. Filled with facts about the Inca empire, cultural adaptations in the Andes, the local environment, high-altitude agriculture and more, the book takes what we know from archaeology and ethnohistory and communicates it in a way designed to stimulate comparison between our present-day culture and that of an ancient people from a distant time and place. Michael A. Malpass, Charles A. Dana Professor in the Social Sciences, Professor of Anthropology, Ithaca College This detailed and up-to-date book about the Incas gives a real sense of what the Incas were like, and how they were able to create such a large empire in so short a time. The activities are fun and exciting. They should provide hours of stimulating activity for students. I highly recommend this book.
