The text of the book is written by Gene. S. Stuart and George E. Stuart, both Mayanists with the National Geographic Society, and is incredibly accurate and reliable. A beautiful book, it includes many splendid drawings and photographs depicting the landscapes, cities, artwork, and plant and animal life of the region inhabited by the ancient and modern Maya. The focus of the book, as the title suggests, is on the `lost kingdoms', the ancient cities, of the Maya and there is a great deal of information on Mayan culture, art, language and, of course, history. The art work and photographs alone are amazing but, coupled with the text and the precise maps, the book is a must-have for anyone interested in the Maya and an excellent addition to any library. Highly recommended.
