An inside look at a fascinating culture
George Ancona takes children on an exciting trip to the Yucatan. Young readers will move in with a warm and loving Mayan family to share their daily lives in town, spend weekends on their ranch, and join in a local fiesta. Photographs and drawings of ancient Mayan architecture and codices reveal the richness of Mayan culture today: a combination of ancient Mayan customs with traditions introduced by the Spanish. Glossary of Spanish and Yucatec words included.
