"On the Mountains of Llanganati, in the Eastern Cordillera of the Quitonian Andes" by Richard Spruce "Travels in Ecuador" by Jordan Stabler "The Inca Treasure of Llanganati" by E.C. Brooks Over the past century numerous explorers have conducted countless expeditions into the Llanganati Mountains of Ecuador utilizing Spruce's paper as the basis for their quest of hidden Inca gold. Many of these explorers, including the world renowned Llanganati expert Eugen K. Brunner, conducted their quests oblivious to the entirety of Spruce's paper, of which only a portion had been published in his work "Notes Of A Botanist on the Amazon & Andes." Without access to Spruce's entire paper and the works of Stabler and Brooks, many years of explorations were in vain.
