Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: When the Spanish encountered the native people of South America in the 15th and 16th centuries, they marveled at the abundance of gold and silver. In fact, the ancient peoples of Peru began making things from gold and silver about 3,000 years ago! Readers will be as fascinated as those first Spaniards were with the inventive and useful items the Aztec, Maya, and Inca cultures created before any Europeans arrived in the Americas. From hieroglyphs and special record-keeping systems to well-developed Incan roads, the technology described adds fun and interesting scientific detail to a common subject of the social studies curriculum. Readers will find even more facts about each topic in the sidebars of each section as well as on a helpful timeline, including information about farming, communication, and transportation. Colorful photographs of buildings and artifacts as well as artistic renderings of history will draw readers into the world of the ancient Americas.
