During the early 1970s, while still in my twenties, I lived for several years in Peru. The narratives that follow describe several journeys I made on horseback during those years, sometimes alone, others in the company of a friend. My life in the Sacred Valley of the Incas is described in the first story, sandwiched between two trips I made to Paucartambo with their unexpected consequences. The second tale records a three week 500-kilometre journey to the Inca’s last redoubt, the mythic Vilcabamba, hidden for centuries behind inaccessible peaks.
