Peru is a country in which women, many of them of Incan descent, are leading the struggle to maintain their native earth, language and culture. This book includes a fascinating description of the Sendero Luminoso (Shining Path) movement, which has been waging a guerilla war against the encroachment of modern-day capitalism on the mountain strongholds of the Incan People.
