H. Hudson would have approved. Louis Halle and his friend Tom Gladwin went to the Peten, a region which lies partly in Guatemala and partly in Yucatan, to look at the great ruins of the Maya civilization. There, in the tangled silences of the jungle, they saw the stones of what were probably the greatest cities of their day in all the world."...dj
