Near Fine in Near Fine jacket. 8vo-over 7¾-9¾" tall. 306pp. Illustrated. The jacket states "second printing" but we believe that this has to do with the fact that as a first American edition (stated first edition on the copyright page) that this has to do with the fact that the American edition is the second time it was printed. Three corners bumped. The jacket is price clipped.
This is the account of Michel Peissel's walk along the coast of the state of Quintana Roo in Mexico about 1961. He describes in great detail the people he meets and the Mayan ruins he encounters along this completely wild coast which would eventually become the Riviera Maya south of Cancun. This book is a must read for anyone interested in travel, Mayan ruins, and the Quintana Roo coast of Mexico. If you travel to that area today you will find very little left of what Peissel found when he made his walk there.
