Where Andean Condors Fly is a collection of free-form narrative, descriptive, and lyrical poetry and light verse, set in the Andes mountains of Peru and Ecuador, including Machu Picchu and the Galapagos Islands. It is written from the perspective and observations of a North American ‘gringa’ resident, over a nine year period. Individual selections address a variety of themes, emphasizing the natural world, culture and traditions passed down through generations from the era of the Incans and conquistadores to their descendants, lifestyle, community events, love and loss, historical and geographical uniqueness. Common in her writings are humorous annotations and spiritual connations, both thought-provoking and inspirational. BOOK REVIEW Where Andean Condors Fly is a book of poetry that will leave indelible memories with readers. Sheila Carnegie has captured, with her beautiful poetry, magnificent places of Ecuador and South America. We are able to visualize, travel and enjoy these Andean landscapes and stories in an experiential and participatory manner. Its romantic, ironic, humorous and captivating style keeps us on the edge of reading and sensitizes us to perceive smells, colors, textures and Andean riches, invaluable and intriguing.
