Book Title: The Modern Maya: Incidents of Travel and Friendship in Yucat√°n

Author: Macduff Everton

Book Description:

Beyond being a exquisite photographic essay, this book charts the adapting society of the modern Yucatec Maya, a population too often overshadowed by the cultural achievements of their ancient ancestors.  Everton's book reminds us of the enduring legacy of this indigenous group who have persevered amid the direst of colonial contexts.
