Published by The Oxford Illustrated Press, 1984, 1st UK Edition, D/w, Fine.   When Christopher Portway (1923-2009) and his companion David Taylor decided to follow the royal road of the Incas from Bolivia through Peru to Ecuador and Colombia, they had set themselves a difficult task – firstly finding the road itself as it was built by the Incas in the fifteenth century and, with later extensions, covered some 3,250 miles, much of which was above 12,000 feet as it ran along the spine of the Andes.  A good read from a member of the Guild of Travel Writers, a Fellow of the RGS and author of 19 books, mostly on his travels.
