PREFACE THIS is the very personal story of a journey in time I was at work on a novel of sixteenth-century Peru, and I wanted to know in the flesh those places identified with my hero and my heroine. The novel Day of Immense Sun covered the ten years immediately preceding the Spanish Conquest, and ended on the 15th of November, 1533, with Pizarro marching victorious into Cuzco, But this expedition in time proved so fascinating, so rich in the material of human living, that I found it impossible to limit it to the period of the novel And so I went back to the beginning, and traveled through the centuries in Peru down to the present day. Peruvian Pageant is the story of that experience-It has grown out of an impulse to share with the reader what is to me the greatest of all pleasures the fusing of a personal journey with the excitement of historical research in my chosen field of Spanish-America .
