Publisher Comments:

Martin Prechtel was raised on a pueblo reservation in New Mexico before moving to Guatemala to live with the Tzutijil people of Santiago Atitlan. He was first apprenticed as a Mayan shaman and rose to become the First Chief of the village. His account of life with the Mayan community in Guatemala captures the magic and mystery of a wise and magnificent people. Their poetry resonates throughout the book with a rhythm that reinforces the vitality of this vanishing culture. "Long Life, Honey in the Heart" is both a personal memoir and a portrait of the importance of community identity.
