About this title


Follows the author as he explores Mexico, Belize, and Guatamala by bicycle, visiting Maya remains, learning about their civilization, and reporting on his discoveries on the Internet.

From Library Journal:

Buettner (SovieTrek, Lerner Publications, 1994) is no stranger to challenging bicycle treks. In February 1995, he and a team including Mayanist Julie Acuff, photographer Douglas Mason, and his two brothers, Steve and Nick, embarked on a three-month, 3,244-mile mountain bicycling expedition through Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula, Belize, Guatemala, and Honduras to gain insights into the causes of the collapse of the Maya civilization around A.D. 900. Carrying laptop computers and a minisatellite dish on loan from Rockwell, these adventurers were able to link up with 40,000 schools involved in the project via Prodigy, as well as other Internet users. The team logged on twice a week, uploaded their findings, fielded questions from students and teachers, and received input from more than one million online participants. Buettner's book is a beautiful photographic account of this unique and often grueling journey. While short on serious archaeological analysis, the book nonetheless captures the magnificence of the Maya ruins and provides an unlikely collaboration of athletic adventure, high technology, and anthropology.
