I checked this book out of the library with a mind to read only the short chapter on Belize in preparation for a trip...and couldn't put it down. The author smoothly weaves fascinating facts from archaeology, history and modern day political science into a very readable journal of his travels. He helps the reader to better appreciate the incredible accomplishments of the ancient Mayan people and to sympathize with their present-day plight. Wright's combination of knowledge, passion and good writing was such a great formula for an enjoyable read that I hardly realized how much learning I was absorbing along the way.

Dan Fascinating description of the way the Maya told time in cycles. Good background to understanding the premise of the world ending in 2012. I also agree with all of Megan's comments. Too bad the missionaries destroyed their books as being the work of the devil.
