One of the most popular country guides, this book provides detailed information for readers who want to visit destinations beyond the tourism resorts.

Book

David Friedel and Linda Schele and Joy Parker
Maya Cosmos: Three Thousand Years on the Shaman's Path, William Morrow, 1993


Christopher Shaw
Sacred Monkey River, Norton, 2000
- Subtitled "A Canoe Trip with the Gods," this remarkable book traces the author's trips running the great Usumacinta River on the border of Guatemala and Mexico. He paints a remarkable portrait of the river and its watershed in an account that combines the best of travel literature and environmental reporting.
g Conversation with Chris Shaw: Watershed Journeys


Pierre Van Den Berghe
The Quest for the Other, University of Washington Press, 1994
- "Ethnic tourism" in Chiapas comes under scrutiny in this well-written tome by anthropologist Van Den Berghe. San Cristóbal has long been one of the hotspots on the "Gringo Trail" but never has one book attempted to explore the impact with much depth. Published the same year as the Zapatista Uprising, the book could use an update, but as is, it's an enlightening and engrossing tale.


Sylvanius Morley, George Brainerd and revised by Robert Sharer
The Ancient Maya, Stanford University Press, 1983


Barbara Tedlock
Time and the Highland Maya, University of New Mexico Press, 1982


Dennis Tedlock
Popul Vuh, Simon and Schuster, 1985


Bruce and June Conord
Adventure Guide to the Yucatan, Hunter Publishing, 2004
- Third edition of a highly-recommended guidebook to this fascinating corner of Mexico, a region which the authors describe as "a big hitch-hiking thumb." Their interest and hard work has paid off. The book is loaded with hotel and transportation info, great maps and interesting art work. Eco travelers will love this guidebook. The Conords provide full details on kayaking, hiking, rappelling, and camping in the region.
