This is the rare picture book with text as good as the photos.  
  
San Francisco Examiner, May 17, 1998 
  
More than merely a collection of beautiful photographs of the region. Just as it was for the first Mayan people who deified golden corn, color is symbolically significant for the Maya of Mexico and Central America, even today. Becom's photographs illustrate these beliefs and a vivid text brings ancient murals, shaman rituals, Days of the Dead festivals, blood red altars and painted tombs into sharp anthropological focus.
