Peruvian Army corporal Lituma and his deputy Tomá s have been dispatched to investigate, and to guard the town from the Shining Path guerrillas they assume are responsible. But the townspeople do not trust the officers, and they have their own ideas about what forces claimed the bodies of the missing men. To pass the time, and to cope with their homesickness, Tomá s entertains Lituma nightly with the sensuous, surreal tale of his precarious love affair with a wayward prostitute. Death in the Andes is an atmospheric suspense story and a political allegory, a panoramic view of contemporary Peru from one of the world' s great novelists. In a remote Andean village, three men have disappeared. His stories are intermingled with the ongoing mystery of the missing men.

|Vicuna: The Queen of the Andes SKIRA |
Prized since the time of the Incas for its extraordinarily soft and fine wool, and deeply venerated by the ancients, the vicuñ a was long threatened with extinction, being hunted indiscriminately for its coveted fibres. Only in recent times, thanks partially to the efforts of Loro Piana, the small camelid has returned from the brink of extinction and now lives protected in strictly regulated reserves in the high Andes. This book tells the story of the vicuñ a, portraying the graceful animal in its natural habitat, underscoring its aura of legend and its role in the life and economy of the local communities, and focusing on the complexities of its existence and the efforts to save it. After Baby Cashmere and The Lotus Flower, Loro Piana tells us the story of the vicuñ a and its coveted fibre. The vicuñ a is a small camelid that lives in the high alpine areas of the Andes.
