All students of Maya history should read this! Each page is uproariously entertaining! It makes for hours of geat conversation and sarcastic references later on in the field!!! Take this along on your next trip to the Peten, or the Yucatan and pass it around. The Umland's theories are wonderfully supported by lack of evidence...I know, it seems impossible but somehow they do it! The jacket design is truly a find in itself. Worth every penny for sheer entertainment value. In Belize I asked one of our local workers if he thought his ancestors flew in spaceships. He gave me a funny look and didn't say yes....and he didn't say no either! Hmmm?!
