Jungle of Stone by William Carlsen

In 1839, John Stephens and Frederick Catherwood trudged into the Guatemalan jungle in search of some rumored rocks that they had heard might be of interest. What they found forever changed Western understanding of the evolution of civilization. Carlsen weaves the two explorers’ life stories into his telling of how Stephens and Catherwood defied both the unforgiving Central American jungle and the xenophobic society of their time to expose the grandeur and remarkable engineering of the Mayas. - Jade
