by Diana L Driver
Description: Learn about the Maya, a brilliant and bloodthirsty culture, with ominous predictions about the end of the Fourth Age of Creation on December 21, 2012? The Maya created a civilization based on terror and human sacrifice and yet managed to excel in the arts, writing, mathematics, astronomy, and the building of temple structures that rival the Egyptian pyramids. However, by the time the Spanish arrived, most of the great Mayan cities had been abandoned and reclaimed by the jungle. Why did this happen? The Maya, People of the Maize is a brief guidebook for readers interested in an overall view of the intriguing and fascinating Mayan culture. It offers readers a basic understanding of ancient Mayan history, religion, and social structure. The Maya, People of the Maize includes examples of Mayan art, pictures and descriptions of Mayan temples, as well as translations of Mayan glyphs-- including the glyphs of the Mayan Long Count Calendar. At the end of the book, the author has included information about predictions concerning the end of the Fourth Age of Creation, December 21, 2012. These predictions come not only from the Maya themselves, but from the I Ching, Edgar Cayce, the Hopi nation, and other sources.
