Rising from the Ruins
By Daniel Peters
A sophisticated, oft-times humourous adventure set at a Mayan archaeology dig. Unemployed writer Harp Tyler accepts an invitation to help with the excavation at Baktun, hoping to find material for a new novel. What he finds besides the plodding drudgery of an archaeological dig is the intriguing history of the Maya, jungle beasts, militant Guatemalans, and a renewed sense of self.
