Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

"In the bush, life shot up with soft green thrusts in cahunes and palms and in sturdy brown flexes with royal mahogany and copal trees, which the Mayans scraped for the incense they burned in every religious ceremony. Life shimmied down with thick ivy and hanging vines, some of which could be slashed open with a machete to release water like some hundred-foot long straw. And, underneath all this cover, life grew sideways with the slither of snakes, the prowl of jaguar, the swoop of parrots, and the crawl of the iguana, whose fat Mayans have used as medicine for centuries. Pink clouds like the earth's last hot breath steamed above the flora. The jungle seemed thick with life, life toppling over life."
