Photograph by O.F.Cook A RECLAMATION PROJECT MADE IN PERU WHEN TIE EUROPEANS PROBABLY LIVED IN CAVES Immediately below Ollantaytambo are these broad terraces, covering more than a square mile. The soil inthese terraces was assembled and put in place as carefully as for the terraces shown on page 497 (see text, page 496). The land produces acrop every year and probably has done so for centuries. In the background along the slope at the left may be seen an inclined road, where the ancient people dragged up the enormous stones to the top of the ridge above the hanging gardens shown in previous photographs.
