In 1839, American explorer and diplomat John Lloyd Stephens entered the jungles of southern Mexico where he saw the great ruins of abandoned cities filled with pyramids, palaces, and carved stones. Stephens had rediscovered the world of the ancient Maya, a civilization that had flourished within the foreboding jungles of Mesoamerica. This civilization built towering buildings, domesticated maize, studied the heavens to understand the regular movements of celestial bodies, and developed their own system of mathematics, but this advanced society mysterious declined nearly a thousand years before Stephens arrived. Customs, religious beliefs, human sacrifices, and other cultural traits are all explored in The Maya, a new title about the most advanced of the pre-Columbian American civilizations.

From the Inside Flap:

For years, professional and amateur explorers and archaeologists have gone on the hunt to look for ancient civilizations and legendary cities. Many of these lost cities have mysteriously disappeared, leaving only traces of the people that had been there before. How could an entire civilization vanish, if indeed it ever existed? In Lost Worlds and Mysterious Civilizations, students will learn about the citizens and culture of these lost worlds, what happened to them, and what impact they have had on history.

This unique and interesting new series is great for general readers and students who are curious about these mysterious cities.

Each title contains 20 full-color and black-and-white images.
