  • Gods and goddesses and their background stories from Aztec mythology
  • Aztec myths about the creation of the world

Informative!

This is an area where much of the information is academic and not very approachable for those of us with no background in it, making it difficult and, let's face it, boring to read. Aztec brings alive a fascinating culture in an interesting and entertaining way in language and format that is easily understood.

Very detailed book.

A very interesting read about a unique culture. I was struck by the dichotomy that existed between a society that relished human sacrifices and yet also encouraged the arts.
