Excellent pictorial history book specially intended for young people Very clear photographs and gives a much detailed ideal of ancient Mesoamerica and Andes people It is utterly disgusting and unfortunate that a few people from Europe destroyed such ancient civilization due to greed Tey not only killed life but destroyed and devastated whatever they saw. Aztec have very unique way of using things We don t use it any the way they use it but we have new designs Aztec have great things and great way to use in their daily life Everything they use its made by hands. Clear illustrations and explanations The Incan s seemed to be different in many ways from the other two cultures so I am not sure why they are grouped together. Really informative read, but I d save it for an older audience Had to skip around for my young ones.
