Now, in Maya Cosmos, Freidel, Schele, and Parker examine Maya mythology and religion, unraveling the question of how these extraordinary people, five million strong, have managed to preserve their most sacred beliefs into modern times. In Maya Cosmos, the authors draw upon translations of sacred texts and histories spanning thousands of years to tell us a story of the Maya, not in our words but in theirs. Maya Cosmos takes this Creation myth from its first expression three thousand years ago by the Olmecs, the first civilization inCentral America, to its living expression in a Ch'a-Chak ceremony held in Yukatan a few years ago.

As an archaeologist, David Freidel shows how using the myth and understanding its effect on the artifacts and architecture created by the ancients help explain what we excavate from the ground. As an epigrapher and iconographer, Linda Schele reads the texts and scenes that preserve the myth for the modern world.

Now, with Maya Cosmos, Freidel, Schele, and co-author Joy Parker deal with the continuity of Maya shamanism over a period of three thousand years. It's a difficult subject, but in the end highly interesting.

This book is written by an archaeologist for other archaeologists. It is more a textbook for a course than a general review of the Mayan civilization, religion, or culture. It is an excellent textbook or reference source but not written for the casual reader.

This is a very scholarly and well organized book. As an academic I recommend it for research!
