Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 148415908X, Paperback)

Who would have thought that a poor peasant boy would rise to become a fierce general, a sun-eyed king, and ultimately a god? Who would have thought that the revenge of a young princess would ultimately save this boy and bring him to the height of power? Yax Kuk Mo was both the product of his time and the maker of his destiny. He leveraged both luck and skill to battle his way across Mesoamerica and found a dynasty that would last for 400 years. He left no writings, but his remains – combined with hints and clues across the region – paint a picture of one of the most powerful movers and shakers in pre-Columbian America.
