Item Details

Long ago, Greek writers created a list of the seven wonders of the world. But that list only included the incredible monuments and other marvelous structures the writers knew about - which were all located in Greece and its surrounding countries. the writers were not aware of the many wonders in other parts of the world. Hundreds of years before European explorers crossed the Atlantic, civilizations were thriving and creating other wonders in Central and South America. They built a royal city, high in rugged mountains. They created pictures in the earth so large that their design can be seen only from an airplane. They recorded their history on the steps of a giant stone staircase. What other wonders did the people of early Central and South America leave behind? to find out, look among ancient temples and tombs, the villages of peasant farmers, and abandoned cities taken over by jungle growth. You're about to begin your search for the seven wonders of Ancient Central and South America!
