Hero and I have hiked through many Anasazi ruins over the years including several trips to Pueblo Chaco, Hovenweep, and Mesa Verde (when you could still enter the big ruin). We love reading and studying about the mysterious Anasazi who built the homes and who often had complicated and amazingly advanced astrological theories. After all our studying and hiking, Hero and I love reading fiction set in the area once inhabited by these peoples. We also like reading archeological and historical non fiction of “those who came before.”

Here are the blurbs for the books:
MAYAN INTRIGUE The discovery of a priceless artifact puts Julia’s life in great danger! From valuable artifacts to shady businessmen, the Yucatan Peninsula becomes a dangerous vacation spot for John and Julia Evans. While on assignment for the newspaper, the Evans try to enjoy a romantic vacation among the Mayan ruins. When Julia accidentally comes upon a couple of suspicious men exchanging an item, she quickly turns and leaves but it is too late. As a reporter, Julia does not easily give up and her curiosity gets her and John in a mess of trouble. Before John and Julia realize what is going on, they are both in danger and find themselves running for their lives through the jungles of the Yucatan.
MONTEZUMA INTRIGUE When a leather parchment of Montezuma’s map is found in great-grandfather Evans’ old chest, April Evans and the Evans twins know this summer is going to be a memorable one. With Julia’s help, April and the twins convince John to go on a treasure hunt. Is Montezuma’s treasure a legend or reality? Whatever the case, John insists on keeping their little treasure hunt a secret. If certain people find out about it, the family could be in danger.
