Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Excellent biography of this fascinating and talented woman. Solomon brings you into the time and world of Tatiana, with whom she had the privilege of working with in the 70s. Important not just as a biographical chronicle following twists and turns of Proskouriakoff's unique life, but also a thoughtful reflection on a woman's journey through a particular time and place in history. Well written.

Format: Hardcover
Fantastic reading that gives a personal and touching insight into the mind and life of a key person in Maya research. It is well written, entertaining and well documented. Char Solomon creates a great balance and describes Tatiana the scientist and the human being: the young and unsure woman who rises to be one of the definitive giants in Maya epigraphy. Most recommended.

Format: Hardcover
Ms. Solomon captures the struggles of a woman in the early 20th century in this well-crafted book. The immigrant family coming to America, the struggles Proskouriakoff faced getting her education, and then doing field work in the areas of architecture and archaeology in parts of the world few men ventured into together prove to be absorbing read. An inspiration to anyone who reads it.

Ms. Solomon's book is very informative and would be enjoyed by anyone interested in Biographies, Women Studies, History, Mayan History, or Archaeology. Ms. Solomon's personal journey with Tania adds to the depth of the book. Well worth the read!!!
