Of Peru And Bolivia:
The Path Of Viracocha

This work would in no way be possible without the expertise, wisdom and adventurous spirit of Sr. Juan Navarro Hierro, director of the Paracas History Museum. It was through my relationship with Sr. Juan that the phenomenon of artificial cranium deformation first grabbed my interest, and turned it into a quest.
He was born and raised in the Paracas Peru area, and early on avidly pursued the remnants of the fabulous pre-Colombian cultures which had inhabited the area. Sr. Juan is respected by many Peruvian archaeologists for his vast knowledge of the ancient cultures of the Pisco, Paracas and Nazca areas, and in my opinion he is indeed the foremost expert.
I also dedicate this book to Lloyd Pye, known to many for his 12 years studying the strange starchild skull, as well as his questioning the validity of Darwinian evolutionary theory. Though he died at a young age, his contributions to unravelling the mysteries of humanity will never be forgotten.
