Confusion over Cajabamba not author's fault.
There is a Cajabamba in Peru, and there is also one in Ecuador.
Caja probably comes from the old Quechua word caxas which means "cold" and bamba means "territory". There are obviously "cold territories" in both Ecuador and Peru.
senior2011!

to mr. or mrs. Peru?
This is not a review: I’m not trying to be mean but in reference to the person with the negative review of the book, page one, chapter one, of my copy, says “Today the Ecuadorian village of Cajabamba…”, meaning to say that the location of that town is in fact in Ecuador, not Peru, right? I just happened to read the review and turn to that page and read this line.
thanks

Peru?
It is in fact a very interesting story,unfortunately, the many mistakes found in this book such as locating Cajabamba in Peru takes credibility out of the writer and making the book itself a poor deliver of the truth.
