Described as a landmark in the ethgraphic study of the Maya, this study of ritual and cosmology among the contemporary Quich Indians of highland Guatemala has w been updated to address changes that have occurred in the last decade. The Classic Mayan obsession with time has never been better kwn. Here, Barbara Tedlock redirects our attention to the present-day keepers of the ancient calendar. Combining anthropology with formal apprenticeship to a diviner, she refutes long-held ethgraphic assumptions and opens a door to the order of the Mayan cosmos and its daily ritual. Unable to visit the region for over ten years, Tedlock returned in 1989 to find that observance of the traditional calendar and religion is stronger than ever, despite a brutal civil war. . . . a well-written, highly readable, and deeply convincing contribution. . . .Michael Coe
