The Incredible Inca Indians for Kids and Teachers
The Inca Indians created an empire high in the rugged Andes Mountains of South America. They built thousands of miles of roads and connected mountain peaks with bridges. Everyone in the empire was well fed and no one was homeless. Yet, the Inca Indians never invented the wheel. They never invented a system of writing. But although their empire only lasted about 100 years, the Inca Indians created a system of government, a history, trade and economy, tall tales and legends, stories about their many gods and goddesses, all kinds of very strange customs, and paved their cities with gold. Come meet the Children of the Sun. Welcome to the Inca Empire!
