Praise

Praise for Turn Right at Machu Picchu

“[An] engaging and sometimes hilarious book.”—The New York Times Book Review

“A serious (and seriously funny) travelogue, a smart and tightly written history, and an investigative report into perhaps the greatest archaeological discovery in the last century.”—NationalGeographic.com

“An engaging, informative guide to all things Inca.”—Entertainment Weekly

“Adams deftly weaves together Inca history, Bingham’s story, and his own less heroic escapade….Those favoring a quirkier retelling [of Bingham’s exploits] will relish Mr. Adam’s wry, revealing romp through the Andes.”—The Wall Street Journal

“Quite funny and unpretentiously well informed…The perfect way to acknowledge the lost city’s one hundredth birthday.”—Christian Science Monitor (“Editor’s Choice”)

“[An] entirely delightful book.”—The Washington Post

With a healthy sense of humor…Adams unearths a fascinating story, transporting his readers back to 1911, when Yale professor Hiram Bingham III hiked the Andes and stumbled upon on of South America’s most miraculous and cloistered meccas.”—NPR.org
