American travel journalist Patricia L. Lawrence embarks on an extensive journey of Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador. With a personable and inquisitive manner, she focuses on Mayan civilization and explores every facet of the culture imaginable. As she travels from site to site, she visits with vibrant personalities who share their deep knowledge of the history, architecture, art, flora, and fauna of Mesoamerica. The field recordings transport the listener to these breathtaking locales, providing a feeling of total immersion in this glorious world.
Downloaded this had recently been to the countries she was travelling to, but its hardly impressive stuff and misses out most of the interesting sites in the area. However saying that, she does cover tikal (in some fashion) and the excellent ruins of copan. The thing that most annoyed me about this book was the constant reminder ever few minutes that your listening to patricia lawrence on audio journeys..... Highly annoying to the point of pulling your hair out after hearing it a hundred times.
