Bolivia, located in the heart of South America, is one of those rare treasures almost totally unknown to the outsider. It is a diverse, culturally enthralling, and mesmerizing country whose history dates back thousands of years. The magnificent Inca Empire that spanned the Andes (including Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, northern Chile, and southern Colombia) is considered by many to be the most sophisticated indigenous civilization in the Western Hemisphere. The Tiahuanaco Empire dates back to 600AD (some archaeologists believe its origins date further back--to 7000BC.) Tiahuanaco was a great Aymaran civilization and excavations are helping archaeologists understand the complexities and brilliance of this amazing part of Bolivian history. Bolivia is in fact the most indigenous country in the hemisphere. Bolivia wouldn't be the sensational nation that she is today without the influence of the rich Amerindian culture. Bolivia is truly a country unlike any other! Here (finally!) is a detailed book on the incredible experience of being Bolivian. Guillermo Camacho, whose hometown is the great city of Cochabamba, takes you on a tour through the majestic Andean highlands, to the magnificent tropical departments of Santa Cruz, El Beni, and Pando, through Sucre (the country's legal capital), to Cochabamba, to the arid lowlands known as the Chaco region, and introduces you to the history, music, culture and the unforgettable people of this wonderful nation. Camacho vividly describes his own personal experiences growing up Bolivian in America and introduces you to the Bolivian-American community. With information on Bolivian history, heads of state, food, cinema, and issues facing Bolivians today, Camacho gives the reader a taste of a whole new world! Jallalla!
