Aztecs, Olmecs, Toltecs, Maya, Incas and more- these were the ancient cultures of Mesoamerica and the Andes, whose rich histories date back thousands of years.  The more recent Aztecs are probably who first come to mind when we think of great empires of that region.  Like other Mesoamerican cultures,  Aztec Myths explained life and death by linking them to the earth  sky and sea in a grand cosmic scheme. 
Each book in the series features an introduction to the history, landscape, characters and culture of the mythology.
