YA-- A dazzling collection of 185 aerial photographs of eight different geographical areas of Mexico. The stunning photographs of natural beauty, mountain villages, Aztec and Mayan ruins, exquisite beaches, river valleys, and snow-topped volcanoes taken from the air belie the stereotypical notion that Mexico consists only of the poverty-stricken slums of its urban areas. Each section is preceded by a concise history of that area from pre-Columbian times, through the conquest by Spain, up to modern times. That Mexico's unique and varied geography has greatly influenced its culture, history, and economy is strikingly evident in these photographs. The index supplements the brief description of each photograph with interesting cultural and historical data. Students studying Spanish, history, art, and geography will find the book useful and entertaining. --Deanna Kuhn, Jefferson Sci-Tech, Alexandria, VA
