Mexico's vanished cultures and ancient deities are vividly brought to life in this informative book by the author of The Great Wall of China and The Tower of London. As in the previous books, black-and-white artwork is accompanied by colored symbols that represent a chronology of people and events. The timechart begins in 150 B.C. and ends with the Spanish conquest in 1521. A map shows the location of Teotihuacan, "the place of the gods," where two pyramids built to worship the sun and moon by the ancient Toltec civilization still stand today as a testament to the past. Enriched with historical detail as well as bythe bold, masterful paintings, this book makes a valuable companion to Fisher's other works of nonfiction. Ages 6-10.
