The 3,200-mile Inca Road was built over 500 years ago to link the outposts of the Inca Empire. Join renowned adventurer Karin Muller as she travels this route, spinning it into a modern tapestry of faces and memories, while intertwining a chronicle of the Inca and how they lived, worshipped, and warred. In this expedition, she searches for remnants of the ancient road, while offering a rare glimpse into the descendants of the Inca.
In this region of exquisite natural beauty – from steamy Amazon jungle to the second-highest mountain range in the world to barren coastal desert filled with a wealth of culture and history, is one of the most compelling tales in all of history: The conquest of the Incan empire. An obscure tribe that swept the Andes to become the greatest civilization in South America in less than 100 years. An empire – ten million strong – defeated by a band of 160 desperate Spaniards. A ransom the likes of which the world has never seen. Betrayal. Death. Rebellion.
