Item description for Mexico: The Signs of History (Exploring Countries of the World) by Pietro Tarallo...
From the Olmecs to the Toltecs, from the Mayans to the Aztecs, from the Conquistadores to the great generals who liberated the land, Mexico is a crossroads of cultures and artistic expressions. Packed with colorful photographs supplemented by a lively, accessible text, this volume whisks young readers on a memorable tour of a country rich in archaeological heritage, cultural contradictions, and breathtaking natural beauty. They will explore humble adobe pueblitos and ancient jungle pyramids. They will discover deep canyons and sun-baked deserts, swim in turquoise seas, sample spicy native foods, and dance to the music of the mariachi. Students and young armchair travelers will find this a trip to remember.
