This intimate biography of a revered scholar in Mayan studies describes the problems and pleasures of archaeological fieldwork, the organization of research, and the personalities of well-known archaeologists...Rich in details about Proskouriakoff's work and her personal life, the book is derived from her diary, correspondence, and interviews with colleagues, friends, and family; the author herself had talked with Proskouriakoff while assisting her in museum studies. The book will attract general readers and anyone interested in the ancient Maya.
