"Author Steve Glassman retraces Stephens' route, visiting the same Maya ruins, Spanish colonial towns, markets, and churches, many of them hardly changed in the 170 years since Stephens and Catherwood visited. Intertwining history, anthropology, and the environment, Glassman presents a wonderful tale of Stephens' adventure and his own. This is a fun and informative book for lovers of Mesoamerica who are drawn to the mysteries of the ancient and modern Maya." - American Archaeology"
