Maya Children: Helpers at the Farm - Kramer, Karen L

Among the Maya of Xculoc, an isolated farming village in the lowland forests of the Yucatan peninsula, children contribute to household production in considerable ways. Thus this village, the subject of anthropologist Kramer's study, affords a remarkable opportunity for understanding the economics of childhood in a pre-modern agricultural setting.
