"Inca Land" by Hiram Bingham

The subtitle of the book is "Explorations in the Highlands of Peru". Even if I found the onslaught on Machu Picchu terrible and the hype around Machu Picchu critical, this is a book you have to read when you visit Peru. Bingham describes in a very informative manner his research journey from 1911 to the region around Cusco, to Lake Titicaca and to the region of Arequipa.
