It begins with the deeds of Mayan gods in the darkness of a primeval sea and ends with the radiant splendor of the Mayan lords who founded the Quiche kingdom in the Guatemalan highlands. Originally written in Mayan hieroglyphs, it was transcribed in the Spanish alphabet in the sixteenth century. This is the first unabridged English edition of the work, in Dennis Tedlock's widley prasied translation, with a full introduction and commentaries on the text." From the bookjacket.
