Editorial Reviews

Review

Fascinating! This book is definitely on the right path. I like the way you have presented the evidence. -- Sonny Reyna, Elder and Counselor, San Juan Bautista American Indian Council

For it's size, this book contains more information on the Aztec Calendar than a dozen books covering the same subject. -- Professor Sam Rios, Ethnic Studies/Anthropolgy, Sacramento State University

This is a study that anyone who claims any Native American ancestry must look at. The presentation is outstanding. -- Dr. Cecil Orozco, Historian, Author, Educator, University of California, Fresno

This is truly a monumental effort to reduce a vast and complicated history into a simple, clear explanation. -- Jeff Paul, Director, Chicano Studies Library, SJSU

Ultimate Guide to the Aztec Calendar! Nothing else goes into this depth and scope of what Mexican culture is about. -- Gerald Rodriguez, Education Director, Mexican Heritage Corporation, San Jose, CA

From the Publisher

The Aztec Calendar Handbook is fully illustrated and designed to allow the average reader easy access to sometimes abstract concepts.

Would you like to know about how and when the Maya influenced the design of the Aztec Calendar? Have you ever seen the Hopi version of the Quetzalcoatl? Would you like to put the last 12,000 years into perspective? If so, then your library needs the Aztec Calendar Handbook. You will find yourself referring to it over and over again.

This attractive book is made from parchment-like paper and has a leather-grained cover, resembling an ancient manuscript. Its appearance ascribes to the antiquity of the sources that were used to create it.

Format: Paperback
Grammatical aside, there is no other treatise on pre-Columbian America and the Aztec Calendar as complete, concise and thought provoking as this one. I didn't notice the grammatical error until the fellow from Tejas spotted it. I was too amazed at having my perception of Native America shattered. After reading many books on the Aztecs, I bought this book and was favorably impressed by the depth, continuity and treatment of the entire subject matter. There is so much information in this book its astounishing. The bibliography contains over 200 sources. Direct eyewitnesses from the 16th century are quoted. The Time-Line is great. I will be referring to this book for years to come.

When I first got the book I thought it wasn't very big and wouldn't have much new info. But it has so much information! I was very very happy with it. So many books on the Aztecs don't tell much about the aztec calendar but this book explains so much and goes into a lot of detail. I highly recommend this book for anyone that has an interest in knowing more about what the aztec calendar stands for.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is pretty well designed. The pages are an off-white yellow tone. The information is fairly thorough but aimed more at somewhere between pop readers and light-duty researchers. So it is definitely worth a read. However, I did not see any reason to read this book more than once which shows some shortcomings for this vying to be a reference book.
