Description - Baktar, a Tale from the Andes by Laurie J White
Baktar is not a common cat -- even though he looks like one. He is a Royal Black Tarquoia, a mythical species, who lived among the ancient Inca of Peru high in the Andes Mountains. Baktar watches over his mistress Amasuwa, an Inca princess who is struggling with her fears concerning her upcoming marriage. Her grandfather Pachacuti, ninth king of the Inca Realm, has his own concerns as he ponders the question of which god really is God and might there be just one? Baktar, meanwhile, is busy with his own escapades, but he is beginning to sense a lurking evil from which he must guard Pachacuti, if necessary, with his life. The scene is the beautiful and mysterious Machu Picchu, summer resort for the royal family. Young readers will enjoy this tale packed with fascinating details about the ancient Inca and wrapped in myth, intrigue and heroism.(Ages 9 and up)
