Publisher's Summary

Making sense of our universe is an age-old practice that transcends cultures and generations. From our vantage point, the larger-than-life Maya civilization grappled with the urge on a grand scale. Join us as we take a voyage to understand the ways of the Maya.

Inside you will hear about:

  • Who made contact: Early explorers and their impact
  • How the Maya wanted to be represented: History written by the victors
  • Different periods of Maya history
  • Larger than life
  • New findings  

We'll learn what they held as sacred, how the sacred manifested itself in their lives, and about efforts to accurately portray them, despite romanticized versions. This audiobook explores their glories and misfortunes and provides a deeper look at their pre-Columbian battling dynasties and their highly structured approach to religion, science, and society.
