Summary "Peru is a unique country with ancient origins, dense rain forests, vast mountains, dry deserts, and diverse wildlife. Long before the first Europeans arrived, Peru was home to the Inca civilization, a successful and powerful group of people. This civilization vanished, however, when the Spanish conquered the area in the 1500s. Since then, Peru has adapted many Spanish customs, beliefs, and traditions; however, in some areas, ancient Inca ruins still remain. Today Peru is a fascinating country to explore. This book delves into the countrys past, examines its present, and discovers what makes the Peru known today." -- Publisher's website.
