Letter to a King: A Peruvian Chief's Account of Life Under the Incas and Under Spanish Rule
248 pp. "Huaman Poma traveled Peru on horseback for over thirty years, drawing upon the memories of his people for an account of Inca life before the Conquest and asessing their servitude under the Spanish. He recounts the history of the legendary Inca emperors with refreshing candor and a remarkable eye for detail... He also describes almost-forgotten native customs... In a style that is almost journalistic in its detail, Huaman Poma brings to life the Ina people, their customs and their sad history." Includes black-and-white illustrations.Keywords: DON FELIPE HUAMAN POMA DE AYALA CHRISTOPHER DILKE LETTER TO KING PERUVIAN CHIEF ACCOUNT OF LIFE UNDER INCAS SPANISH RULE PERU SPAIN LATIN AMERICAN HISTORY FIRST EDITION BIOGRAPHY
