    About the Author

    Hugh Thomson is an unusual combination of writer, film-maker and explorer. Hugh has led many expeditions to Peru, starting in 1982 when he was 21, and has now become one of Britain's foremost modern explorers of Inca settlements. His recent memoir Tequila Oil: Getting Lost in Mexico describes his early experiences travelling through that country and his interest in the Maya.
