This compelling collection of essays explores the Qhapaq nan (or Great Inca Road), an extensive network of trails reaching modern-day Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Chile, and Argentina. These roads and the accompanying agricultural terraces and structures that have survived for more than six centuries are a testament to the advanced engineering and construction skills of the Inca people. Beautifully designed and featuring more than 225 full-color illustrations, The Great Inka Road: Engineering an Empire, the companion volume to a National Museum of the American Indian exhibition of the same name, is a fascinating look at this enduring symbol of the Andean peoples' strength and adaptability.
