Idyllic Perú: An Adventure Memoir (Paperback)
From euphoric highs (16,000+ feet) to depressing lows (life-saving emergency surgery), Ed's Peruvian experience was anything but routine. With Machu Picchu, the most visited tourist site in South America, as the centerpiece, Ed takes us with him on daily exciting journeys to mountain peaks, dangerous jungles and abandoned Inca cities. This adventure memoir, with over 100 photos, is the next best thing to actually being there.
