Book and dust in very good condition. Translated from the French by Elaine P. Halperin. First American Edition. ""This careful journal records the French archaeologist's ten year inquiry into a twofold puzzle. Why did the classical Mayans build their incredible cities in the most inaccessible and almost unlivable areas in Central America? And why did they completely abandon them to disappear as the western hemisphere's most vital early culture? Ivanoff's search for clues led to the discovery of a lost city in the jungles of Peten and to years of living with a primitive tribe called the Lacandons who most closely resemble, both physically and culturally, the ancient Mayans.
