A Dream of Maya: Augustus and Alice Le Plongeon in Nineteenth Century Yucatan
by Lawrence Desmond
Publisher's Description
Augustus and Alice Le Plongeon excavated and photographed many of the Mayan ruins during the 1870s and 1880s. Although they are primarily remembered for their eccentric ideas that the Maya founded world civilization, this book shows the substance behind their extensive field work on the Mayans. "We have much to learn from this bizarre, yet compelling couple."--New York Times Book Review.
