From the back of the book --

“La Cultura Antimpampa” brinda la oportunidad de visualizar a una cultura antigua que vivió en las tierras altas del sur andino del Perú. Este libro describe con minuciosidad fidedigna aplicando palabras precisas para el leyente, además de impresionantes imágenes para resaltar lo magnífico que fue este florecimiento poco conocido. Ellos fueron capaces de erigir exitosos acueductos desde manantiales situados a kilómetros de distancia, que aún son utilizados por los agricultores. Los antiguos pobladores de Antimpampa nos dejaron algunas pistas para entender su vida social, y creencias simbolizados por sus pirámides, mausoleos y ciudadelas. También labraron monolitos de piedra, pintaron lajas y cerámicas con figuras de animales y personas, ingeniosamente estilando una variedad de colores y técnicas. Del mismo modo el texto destaca el clima, la vegetación, la evolución volcánica y glacial, y sus consecuencias en los recientes cambios climáticos en el nevado Coropuna, la fuente principal de agua de la región donde Antimpampa floreció. “La Cultura Antimpampa”, escrito por Jesús E Cabrera, un descendiente de Pampacolca, revela la historia de esta cultura pre-Colombina y nos permite revivir su legado cultural.

“The Antimpampa Culture” opens a window into an ancient culture that once lived in the Southern Andean Highlands of Peru. As you explore this work you will discover through words and stunning images the magnificence of this past and little known culture. These amazing people were innovative and hard working as they successfully engineered and built aqueducts to bring water into the community and farmland from springs located miles away that are still being used by farmers today. The ancient inhabitants of Antimpampa left us clues to understand their social life and beliefs symbolized by their pyramids, mausoleums and citadels. Their use of art in carved monolith stones, painted rocks and ceramics depicting animals and people, ingeniously using a variety of different colors and techniques, gives us insight into their culture and daily lives. Included in this text is an outline of the climate, the vegetation, the volcanic and glacial evolution, and its consequences of the recent climate changes on the environment of the Nevado Coropuna, the main water source of the region in which Antimpampa flourished. “The Antimpampa Culture,” written by Jesus E Cabrera, a Pampacolca descendent, reveals the history of this pre-Columbian culture and allows us to relive their wonderful culture.
