WE REALLY RECOMMEND THIS ONE FOR A "GOOD READ"
Barbara Tedlock's account of the Maya, and a modern Maya "Timekeeper", is written not with the usual "dry-as-dust" presentation of dates and figures, but with passion and beauty, telling the story of the survival of the ancient ways into the present, and on to the future. You truly will not want it to end!
