Maya Cosmos, Three Thousand Years on the Shaman's Path

by Joy Parker  •  Linda Schele  •  David Freidel

  • ARCHAEOLOGY
  • 2001
  • PAPER
  • 543 PAGES

A provocative, speculative history of Central American religious practices since the dawn of the Maya kingdoms. The authors -- an archaeologist, an epigrapher and a popular historian -- suggest that contemporary shamanistic practices may be continuous with the religious rituals of the ancient Maya.  (MYA32, $23.99)
