Description

"This is one of the great books of archaeological 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 that country; the Maya Indian culture, for example, had not been discovered.  Stephens found, and described in this work, forty-four Maya sites; his account of these remains is, after more than a century, still the most authoritative in existence." ~excerpt from the back cover of Incidents of Travel in Yucatan
