For centuries, the true history of the internal linkMaya--one of the most mysterious cultures of the ancient world--has eluded archeologists.

Reads like short stories and holds one's interest.  The authors help bring to life the lives of rulers of ancient Mexico. Stories are pieced together from artifacts, stelae, buildings at Tikal, Uaxactun, Piedras Negras, Chichen Itza, and other sites.  Interesting and at times speculative, rich with the flavor and color of the Mayan aristocracy of internal linktimes gone by.
