"This is one of the great books of archaological discovery, and at the same time one of the few really absorbing books of travel. Before STephens' expedition to Yucatan in 1841, little was known of tha tcountry; the Maya Indian culture, for example, had not been discovered." 127 engravings.

This and it's accompaning volume 2 got me hooked on travel books. This is a story of an early 19th century journey.
