Audible Editor Reviews

American travel journalist Patricia L. Lawrence takes the listener on a journey to San Jose, Guatemala, where she meets with a guide who shares stories about the preservation of past and present Mayan culture. There is an emphasis on natural healing and the plants related to the endeavor. As she travels from Lake Peten Itza, she encounters botanists who are growing medicinal plants. Her steady voice and inquisitive manner makes the information about this exciting locale seem simple to digest, and the live field recordings create an ambience of adventure.
