This is a story that sings the grandeur of the mountains: the wild crags, the canyons and gorges, the lovely pastures and wildflowers and deep crystal pools. More than that, it sings the grandeur of the Incas themselves: their grace and pride and dignity, the greatness that was never defeated but lives on, sacred within their hearts.
