Item Description...
Examines the culture and great achievements of Tikal, the largest city of the Mayan dynasty, which prospered from trade and military triumphs, and whose people mastered the principles of mathematics, architecture, agriculture, and astronomy.

Publishers Description

During the first millennium AD, one of the world's great civilizations appeared in the dense jungles of Mesoamerica. All over the Yucatan Peninsula, the Maya mastered sophisticated principles of mathematics, architecture, agriculture and astronomy and created scores of powerful city-states. At the center of this world was the largest city of them all -- Tikal.

Sprawling over twenty-five square miles, Tikal was situated in the heart of the Yucatan, near rivers that flowed to every corner of the Maya world. Tikal prospered from trade and military triumphs. Its rulers used its wealth to build a magnificent city of palaces, grand plazas and some of the largest stone pyramids seen in the Americas.

As with all great achievements of a civilization, Tikal is a window into the culture that created it. By telling the story of the city -- from its humble beginnings, through its bloody wars, to its "golden age" -- Tikal illuminates the Maya world in all its grandeur, glory and genius.

"Wonders of the World" series

The winner of numerous awards, this series is renowned for Elizabeth Mann's ability to convey adventure and excitement while revealing technical information in engaging and easily understood language. The illustrations are lavishly realistic and accurate in detail but do not ignore the human element. Outstanding in the genre, these books are sure to bring even the most indifferent young reader into the worlds of history, geography, and architecture.

""One of the ten best non-fiction series for young readers."" - Booklist

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Tikal  Nov 14, 2007
This book is for children, not for adults that are planning a visit to Tikal.
It was disappointing for that reason.
The splendors of Tikal  Jan 4, 2007
