PeruBook - 2016
Peru is a unique country with ancient origins, dense rain forests, vast mountains, dry deserts, and diverse wildlife. Long before the first Europeans arrived, Peru was home to the Inca civilization, a successful and powerful group of people. This civilization vanished, however, when the Spanish conquered the area in the 1500s. Since then, Peru has adapted many Spanish customs, beliefs, and traditions; however, in some areas, ancient Inca ruins still remain. Today Peru is a fascinating country to explore. This book delves into the country's past, examines its present, and discovers what makes the Peru known today. All books of the critically-acclaimed Cultures of the World® series ensure an immersive experience by offering vibrant photographs with descriptive nonfiction narratives, and interactive activities such as creating an authentic traditional dish from an easy-to-follow recipe. Copious maps and detailed timelines present the past and present of the country, while exploration of the art and architecture help your readers to understand why diversity is the spice of Life.
