Incidents of Travel in Central America, Chiapas, and Yucatan
by John Lloyd Stephens
In 1839, President Martin Van Buren sent John Lloyd Stephens as Special Ambassador to Central America. What he found was a state of civil war, but what he found on the ground would change our view of Central American civilization forever. Although his political mission was doomed from the beginning, Stephens spent the next two years exploring the wild jungles and wilderness of Belize, Guatemala, and Mexico, visiting and recording ancient Mayan sites. Many of these Mayan ruins had been visited previously but it was through the explorations and writings of John Lloyd Stephens that the wider world truly became fascinated with the civilization of the Maya peoples.
