Eighteen Rabbit: The Intimate Life and Tragic Death of a Maya God-King
Deep in the mysterious jungles of Central America, in a time when Arthur was long dead, yet before Charlemagne even stirred in the womb, the brilliant and powerful god-king, Eighteen Rabbit, ruled the city of Copan in renaissance splendor. This is his story – a tale of glorious temples and gory sacrifices, strange narcotics and brutal statecraft. It is a story of pride and humility, love and betrayal, devious intrigue and the triumph of the human will. It is a story told by Eighteen Rabbit himself, masterfully teased out of the stone inscriptions he commissioned, as if it happened only yesterday. Thank you,
