Spell of the Urubamba free pdf This work examines the valley of the Urubamba River in terms of vertical zonation, Incan impact on the environment, plant use, the history of exploration and the notion of discovery, the idea of land reform, and cultural contact with the European world. Winding its path northward from the Andean Highlands to the Amazon, the valley has served as the stage of pre-Columbian civilizations and focal point of Spanish conquest in Peru.

About Daniel W. Gade

For more than 50 years and on four continents, Daniel W. Gade (b. 1936) has carried out research in cultural-historical geography. Regionally, his investigations have focused especially on the Central Andes on which he published two previous books and 50 peer-reviewed articles. In all of his studies, in South America and elsewhere, the author has integrated space, time, culture and ecology in order to elucidate the multiple dimensions of place. Taken together, his scholarly work manifests a keen intellectual curiosity, phenomenological imagination, polymathic exploration and self-reflexivity. Over the decades support for his fieldwork has come from the National Academy of Sciences-National Research Council, the Comite Conjunto Espana-Estados Unidos, the Social Science Research Council, several research Fulbright awards and the University of Vermont. Professor Emeritus Daniel Gade, taught geography at the University of Vermont for 33 years. At various times during that period he was also a research fellow in Latin American Studies at the University of Pittsburgh and Cornell University and received residential grants from the John Carter Brown Library in Providence and the Camargo Foundation in France.
