Audio Book Summary

The year is 1838. The scene is the dense Honduran forest along the Copán River. Two men, John Lloyd Stephens and Frederick Catherwood, are about to rediscover Mayan civilization. Their guide, slashing through the rampant growth with his machete, leads them to a stone column, fourteen feet high, sculptured on the front with a portrait of a man, "solemn, stern and well fitted to excite terror," covered on the sides with hieroglyphics, and with workmanship "equal to the finest monuments of the Egyptians." Stephens records their discoveries and also his travels in Central America, while Catherwood directs his immense artistic talent to illustrating views of Mayan architecture. Incidents of Travel in Central America, Chiapas and Yucatán was a best seller in its day and has been called an "Indiana Jones" saga by modern reviewers. (Summary by Sue Anderson)
