From journalist, TV presenter and writer Mariela Sonaly Tuesta Altamirano (Lámud, 1972), the text is inspired by the essence of the television program of the same name that, for 20 years, has been broadcast on TV Peru. Narrated in first person by the author, the book gathers ten chronicles (in ten little-known ethnic communities of Peru), in a close and testimonial tone, about their traditions, their music, their customs, their beliefs, their dreams. Includes infographics for travelers, photographs of their characters and a glossary with not widely used terms. The auithor "shares the ancestral flavors of the kakataibo (Ucayali), the Awajún (Amazonas) and the kukama (Loreto) women,the popular devotion to the Virgin of Carmen in Huánuco, to saint Toribio in La Libertad and to Jesus Nazarene in the Amazons, and the rituals of "apus" in Cusco, the black mud miracles of Ancash, the quinoa of Puno as well as the wisdom and beauty of the Chota's female peasants in Cajamarca."
