"A leading expert on pre-Columbian archaeology, Johan Reinhard has spent more than 25 years examining sacred landscape in the contexts of inca and pre-inca cultures and the beliefs of modern day Andean peoples. He has discovered several pre-Columbian sanctuaries, including some on the highest summits of the Andes. Among his most important discoveries have been frozen mummies of Inca sacrifices., such as the three that were found perfectly preserved at 22,000 feet on Llullaillaco in 1999 and the four mummies (including the famed "Juanita") found near the 20,700-foot summit of Ampato in 1999."-back cover.
