    Book details

Find out about the ancient Incas while you enjoy the story of Baktar, feline friend of Pachacuti, the ninth Inca king. Baktar is not a common cat, even though he looks like one. He is a Royal Black Tarquoia, a mythical species who lived among the ancient Inca of Peru high in the Andes Mountains.Baktar watches and guards his mistress Amasuwa, an Inca princess who is struggling with her fears concerning her upcoming marriage. Meanwhile, her grandfather Pachacuti has problems of his own as he ponders the question of which god really is God--and might there be just one? Baktar is busy with his own escapades, but he is beginning to sense a lurking evil from which he must guard Pachacuti, if necessary, with his life. The scene is the beautiful and mysterious Machu Picchu, summer resort for the royal family. Young readers will enjoy this tale with its fascinating details about the Ancient Inca wrapped in myth, intrigue and heroism. Historical evidence for the real Pachacuti's religious conversion to one supreme God is addressed at the end. FOR AGES 8+
