Summary, etc.:
Textbooks tell the dramatic story of the imprisoned Inca who paid a ransom of a roomful of gold to the Spanish Conquistador Francisco Pizarro and, for most people, this event in 1532 and the subsequent fall of the Inca empire, marks the beginning of the history of Peru. However, today's findings enhance yesterday's knowledge of history. Dr. Dwayne L. Merry, noted anthropologist and archaeologist, demonstrates in this film that the Incas built their civilization on previous cultures dating back more than 3,000 years. Travel through the snow-covered Andes and the lush jungles of the Amazon in search of the Treasures of Peru. Take a voyage across Lake Titicaca, where the Incas say man was created. Explore the 3,500 year old temple at Chavin. Fly over the mysterious drawings on the plains of Nazca. Admire Enrique Poli's unrivaled collection of gold artifacts. Marvel at the mystical city of Machu Picchu. Visit with Thor Heyerdahl and Walter Alva as they tell of their discoveries of fabulous treasures. Learn about the colorful people while viewing the scenery of this magnificent country.
