The Lost City of Machu Picchu: Footprint Reading Library 1 by Rob Waring

The Lost City of Machu Picchu is a spectacular creation of informational text for young readers. In a sense, it is a text book for kids. It is engaging and actually teaches content to the readers. I liked the book overall, even though I am not really one for informational text, myself. Literary elements in this book included footnotes, and quiz style readings to test the reader. Design elements included illustrated pictures, but It also incorporated actual photographs. The elements contrast each other as well as compliment each other at the same time.

What makes Machu Picchu so darned special? Sitting at the 2,meter 7,foot level of Machu Picchu Old Peak Mountain, the site is stunningly, hauntingly beautiful. Built around for the Emperor Pachacuti, the palace was abandoned a century later. Miraculously, the site escaped the plundering and destruction of the Spanish conquistadores who destroyed everything Inca they could get their hands on. Over the centuries, the site became overgrown with vegetation.

By Linda Garrison. Machu Picchu is the most spectacular archaeological Incan site in South America. This Peruvian mysterious "Lost City of the Incas" has fascinated history buffs for almost a century. Aside from its spectacular setting in the Andes, Machu Picchu is fascinating to archaeologists and historians because it is not documented in any of the ancient chronicles of the Spanish conquistadors. The seafaring Spanish conquered the Incan capital Cuzco and moved the seat of power to coastal Lima. In their records, the conquistadors mention numerous other Incan cities, but not Machu Picchu. Machu Picchu was known to only a few Peruvian farmers until when an American historian named Hiram Bingham almost stumbled across it while searching for the lost city of Vilcabamba.

    The Lost City of Machu Picchu is a mysterious wonder; the Incas built there a city of stone, without the aid of wheels or iron tools. This is the best example of Inca.
