Chapter 2 briefly describes the central Andean belt and its d altroy los incas and jungle fringes d altroy los incas terms of physiography, geography and society, including a few pages devoted to pre-Inca prehistory.

Mar 21, Matt Engdahl rated it really liked it This was the first book I've ever read on the topic of the Incas, and so there was much to learn. And learn I did.

Following conquest the local d altroy los incas were executed.
The ruler's children were brought to Cusco to learn about Inca administration systems, then return to rule their native lands. This allowed the Inca to indoctrinate them into the Inca nobility and, with luck, marry their daughters into families at various corners of the d altroy los incas.

The following quote describes a method of taxation: For as is well known to all, not a single village of the highlands or the plains failed to pay the tribute levied on it by those who were in charge of these matters.
There were even provinces where, when the natives alleged that they were unable to pay their tribute, the Inca ordered that each inhabitant should be obliged to turn in every four months a large quill full of live lice, which was the Inca's way of teaching and accustoming them to pay tribute.
This approval was received as detailed in the following quote: Pizarro was named governor and captain of all conquests in Peru, or New Castile, as the Spanish now called the land. Perhaps more importantly, smallpoxinfluenzatyphus and measles had spread from Central America.
The d altroy los incas led by Pizarro consisted of men, one cannonand 27 horses.
