A lively, eloquent guide to the Maya ruins of Mexico's Yucatan peninsula, as entertaining today as when it was first published in 1843, Stephens' guide recounts his two trips made to the region between 1839 and 1842. It includes extensive accounts of 44 Maya sites as well as of Yucatan folkways, manners, dress, ceremonies, amusements, all of which makes this a great travel book.
Illustrated by 127 engravings.
This is an unabridged, unaltered republication of the original edition first published in 1843.
