Dr. Jeffrey Hale Collins teaches Interdisciplinary Studies, works on archaeological digs, researches and teaches in Rome each summer, and is the author of five other books: The Archipelagos of Summer, Illuminations in Italy, Turning Stones, Quantum Canticles, and The Phoenix Songs.

Book description…

These evocative essays and poems center on a theme from quantum physics: entanglement, and the realization that at all levels of reality, all is entangled. The author explores wildebeest migrations, the ancient Maya, a human ear, mythic sirens, and the infinite net of Indra and stars through the lens of physics, myth, archaeology, astronomy, even genetics. Each work explores, from new perspectives, the worlds we inhabit: the micro and macro cosmos, viewing them through poetic/scientific excursions into genetics, Ice Age artists, math geniuses, and the James Webb Space Telescope as a Cosmic Eye. This book is a journey into the “unknowable continuums,” as Collins writes, and “we live in them; they live in us.”

Scott Bernard has a B.A. in Economics from Brown University. He is the author of the highly acclaimed novels “Cajamarca, Sons of the Sun” and “Cuzco, Eclipse of the Sun.” In the footsteps of his characters, he walked 500 miles across Spain, explored Francisco Pizarro’s hometown of Trujillo, attended Mass and interviewed priests in Pedro Pizarro’s church of San Martin. He has climbed through mangrove swamps in Ecuador, walked hundreds of miles of original Incan roads and across every battlefield. He has shared spirt-soaring nights in the homes of the Andean, Quechua People whose reverence for the Natural World has changed very little in 500 years. He has brought the spirit of these people and those nights to his writing.

Book description…

After more than a year apart, Pedro Pizarro and his native friend Quispe come together again, on the third night of the battle to take the great fortress of Saqusayhuaman high above Cuzco. Quispe was preparing himself to jump with hundreds of others from the cliff into the land of his ancestors.

200 Spaniards with 70 emaciated horses hold the central grand plaza and have taken the fortress. 200,000 natives surround them in the hills and mountains and look to Manco Inca to show them the path to their revenge. Manco Inca is just seventeen, the youngest and the fourth Sapa Inca in four years. He has seen the devastation of a civil war and the unstoppable power of the silver shelled riders on their horses swinging Toledo-steel swords. He has seen the power of the strangers’ bad spirits that have brought sickness to so many of his people.

This incredible and fascinating conclusion of the Spaniards’ conquest of the Incan Empire is detailed on a most compelling, personal scale. It is the story of two great friends and their two views of the historic events that, try as they might, they could not change – until the very last day.
