"Thank you for writing such a beautiful book. Your writing is removed of all sentimentalism, and that is good because there isn't any other way to tell the truth." A reader of Maya Roads Northern California Book Award 2012 Best Creative Nonfiction National Geographic Traveler Book of the Month Chatelaine (Canada) Editor's pick

Background Information

 I wrote Maya Roads after thirty years of traveling in the rainforest region of southern Mexico and northern Guatemala, not only as a journalist but also because I am deeply taken by all culture Maya, ancient and modern. I don't avoid the violence that has ripped that part of the world with revolution and civil war, describing what I have seen; but I travel too in order to find the sacred Maya sites, and to wonder at the ancient cities that speak even in ruins.
