Peruvian Gothic: The story of Don Benigno Añazco

From Outside Magazine, November 1996. Says author Kate Wheeler, "Don Benigno Añazco carved his way 36 years deep into the green heart of the Andean forest, founded 14 settlements, abandoned his wife and many children, married his daughter, slew his son-in-law, fought drug peddlers, tamed the wilderness, and reclaimed, as best he could, the Inca Empire. And now I was going to find him."
