Summary

Summary

Compared to the ancient Greeks and Romans, the Mayan and Aztec civilizations seem modern. Still, their mythological tales are rooted in a long history and offer a glimpse into the colorful and violent Mayan and Aztec traditions. Each myth is followed by a Question and Answer section which covers themes, symbols, and characters; and an Expert Commentary section, which makes for great discussion.
