Book Description:
Ever thought of becoming a bug farmer? Or how about a stone slinger? Imagine growing up in Mesoamerica before the Spanish Conquest (1350 1521). What does your future hold? The ancient Aztecs, Maya and other Mesoamericans believed that the gods created a world where everyone had a role to play. Some people were born to rule, others to serve. If you were lucky, you might have been a high priest or a queen. On the other hand, you could have ended up as a latrine boatman or a slave destined to become a sacrificial victim. Find out what it was like to be a tax collector (don't try to keep any money for yourself; the penalty is death!) or a porter (only if you enjoy carrying heavy packs up mountains). Or perhaps you'd prefer building pyramids, raising dogs or being a royal cook (frog casserole with green chile, anyone?). Other jobs you might have held include: Counterfeiter Bell maker Mosaic mask maker Beekeeper. Featuring a fact filled introduction, a timeline and humorous illustrations, this book offers a unique view of one of the most remarkable civilizations of all time. (20081201)
