About
In Life and Death in the Andes, Kim MacQuarrie travels 4,500 miles through South America down the spine of the Andes, the longest mountain chain in the world. Through the stories of the characters connected to this region - including explorers, revolutionaries, drug lords, and even a fourteen-year-old girl sacrificed by the Incas - MacQuarrie reveals the rich and often turbulent history of this region.

MacQuarrie interweaves these stories with vivid historical accounts, revealing the larger story of the struggle to control South America - and of the sacrifices made in the process - bringing to life the history of an entire continent and its people.
