Publisher's Summary

If you're looking for a captivating collection of Inca myths, then pay attention....

The myths of the Inca gods in the first section of the audiobook explain how the world was created and also detail the adventures of various deities as they vie for supremacy or act as tricksters in the worlds of mortals and huacas alike. The second section contains the origin myth of the Inca Empire, which was used to justify Inca political legitimacy. This section also presents other tales involving the mythologized deeds of Inca emperors and their interactions with divine beings.

The final section contains a collection of Andean folktales and a prose narrative version of the 18th-century drama Apu Ollantay, which may have been based on an ancient Inca tale and which tells the story of the forbidden love between Cosi-Collyur, daughter of the Inca Pachacuti, and the brave warrior Ollantay, whose name also graces the Inca fortress of Ollantay-tambo just north of Cuzco.

Inca Mythology: Captivating Inca Myths of Gods, Goddesses, and Legendary Creatures invites you to go on a startling journey and discover:

  • Stories of the Gods
  • Inca political myths
  • Five Andean folktales and an Inca play
  • And much, much more!

Inca Mythology Well Explained

The Handbook of Inca Mythology contains a short description of ancient Inca and Andean Civilization as well as explains the reason why this culture has almost vanished under the influence of another, Spanish, culture. However, the only carriers of the Inca Mythology: Mythic Narratives, Themes and Concepts to which we refer today are the texts left by the chroniclers and Andean authors of the time of the Spanish invasion.

Good Introduction

This audiobook is quite useful. In areas in which I am somewhat knowledgeable, I find a good summary is presented but with a minimum of references.

Well Written Book

This book is for a general audience. It is well written with only occasional use of perhaps overly technical words, for example, chthonic for the underworld. It has a very good Index and a list of essential references, at least those that have been published in English.

So Far So Good

An excellent book that challenges many of the basic assumptions about ancient civilizations. It shows that they were highly interested in the skies, which dominated their day-to-day lives.

Great Overview

This audiobook presents a much more credible explanation for the Inca's collapse, and along the way shows us the tragic and touching humanity of perhaps the greatest pre-Columbian culture.
