5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining read, amazing portrait of a harsh land that has largely disappeared 28 Jun. 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I bought this book because my work often takes me to Quintana Roo and Belize. It didn't disappoint! It's amazing to read about how Quintana Roo (now known to foreigners as the Riviera Maya) was pure jungle at that time. Peissel's ill-advised travel and incredible luck also make for an entertaining read. Pluses are the antiquated points of view that are occasionally expressed (about bandits, indigenous people, Belizeans, etc.) and the powerful descriptions of lifestyles in a harsh land. Recommended for people who like adventure and those who are familiar with Q. Roo--you won't believe how different things were there just 50 years ago.

5.0 out of 5 stars I read this book many years ago. It is ... 5 May 2015
By Sheila Quaid - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I read this book many years ago. It is fabulous!! The description of his ride on a Mexican bus is worth getting the book for.

It was written decades ago and may seem outdated compared to what Quintana Roo and Yucatan are today, but informative and charming nonetheless.
4.0 out of 5 stars Good Read 19 July 2015

I gave this as a gift to my husband. We love the Yucatan and have visited many times. He was quite interested to read about the early days of all the places we have visited. Definitely a worthwhile read for those who know the area.
