Forlagets beskrivelse
Excerpt from The Golden Magnet: A Tale of the Land of the Incas

But soon the purple ¿ood of darkness began to give place to golden light, as, still streaming down, as it were, from the mountain tops, the sunshine leaped in bright cataracts from point to point, rushing up this dark gully, that vast fissure, turning gloom into glowing landscape, and at last filling the vast vales with gladness and life, as the glowing picture burst into full beauty.

Here, at the foot Of the mountains, ¿owed the mighty rivers of South America, bordered by the vast, eternal tropic forest, with its dank, steaming moisture - the home of the fierce beast, the loathsome reptile, and insect plagues innumerable. Far up the mountains was the land Of ice and snow, fierce biting wind, and sleety tempest, with here and there patches Of verdure, the pastoral land Of the vicuna and llama ¿ocks; but in the intermediate space, balanced, as it were, between the tropical heat and the wintry frosts, on the table-lahds half-way up the moun tains, was the stronghold Of the Peruvian civilization. SO near to the equator that intolerable heat might have been expected, an expectation, though, not fulfilled, for the elevation gave to the Peruvians a glorious climate, with all the brightness but none of the enervation Of equatorial land.
