From the Olmecs to the Toltecs, from the Mayans to the Aztecs, from the Conquistadores to the great generals who liberated the land, Mexico is a crossroads of cultures and artistic expressions. Packed with colorful photographs supplemented by a lively, accessible text, this volume whisks young readers on a memorable tour of a country rich in archaeological heritage, cultural contradictions, and breathtaking natural beauty. They will explore humble adobe pueblitos and ancient jungle pyramids. They will discover deep canyons and sun-baked deserts, swim in turquoise seas, sample spicy native foods, and dance to the music of the mariachi. Students and young armchair travelers will find this a trip to remember.
