Writing for a wide public audience, Aveni begins by establishing the Nasca Lines as a true wonder of the ancient world. He describes how viewers across the centuries have tried to interpret the lines and debunks some of the wilder theories. Then he vividly recounts his own years of exploration at Nasca in collaboration with archaeologists, anthropologists, astronomers, and engineers and the discoveries that have answered many of the riddles about who made the Nasca Lines, when, and for what purposes. He also demonstrates how the lines manifest a universal human desire to create monumental earthworks that extends around the globe and to the present day.
