He has discovered several pre-Columbian sanctuaries, including some of the highest summits of the Andes." "In 1991 Reinhard first published Machu Picchu: The Sacred Center, presenting evidence that the site's spectacular setting and much of its construction are related to its unique location among the great mountain of southern Peru. This revised fourth edition is illustrated with color photographs, maps, and drawings along with a prologue and an epilogue that place Reinhard's original work in the context of subsequent research and discoveries."--Jacket." ;
