Summary

"The story is set deep in the Peruvian Andes, where five ill-prepared travellers - men and women with different values, temperaments and motives - find themselves trekking through one of the most exacting and beautiful regions on earth." "It is a journey which may temper or destroy them. They confront not only their relationships with one another, but the enigmas of the country's past, the dangers of its present, and the limitations of their own minds and bodies. The 'lost city' of their destination Vilcabamba, last refuge of the Inca against the Spaniards, subsumed by jungle for four hundred years."--BOOK JACKET.
