Allen Pollensabout this book: Deep in Mexico's Yucatan Jungle, an Ancient Mayan Village Reveals Secrets That Will Change Storytelling Forever.
“CONJUROR – Living the Tale” tells of an extraordinary storyteller evolution taking place in an ancient Mayan village hidden deep in Mexico's Yucatan jungle. Its discovery and introduction into the outside world has significant consequences.
Freelance writer Maureen Connor travels to Mexico’s Yucatan on her honeymoon. She and her husband, Vincent, visit Mayan ruins at Uxmal, Chichén Itzá, Tulum and Cobá … all pictured for the benefit of the reader. With the help of an anthropologist, they return to Yucatan to risk entry into what is considered to be impenetrable jungle. Maureen is in search of a teller of stories, as in ancient times. The success of the book she is writing depends on finding this spoken spinner of tales. Their journey takes them to Chetumal, Campeche City, Xmaben and finally Macanche, where the road ends short of the dense Punta Put jungle. Along the way, they recruit others to help them in their quest. They also must contend with kidnapping thieves. Maureen brings the remarkable conjuror storyteller back with her to New York City along with the others from Mexico who joined the expedition. Readers are treated to pictures from the Mayan’s tour of Manhattan. As part of the promotion for her new book, major conjuring events are presented in New York City, Chicago and Boston. However, Conjuror is hounded by those who want to control him for personal benefit. Conjuror Escapes to Mexico, but he is nearly destroyed by harrowing experiences he suffers there. He responds by conjuring a final colossal event in Mexico City.
CONJUROR offers intriguing characters, facing unexpected challenges, in exciting locations with many pictures to add to the enjoyment of the story.
CONJUROR – Living the Tale exceeds 80,000 words, runs more than 400 pages and has more than 80 illustrations. It is available in both paperback and for Kindle at Amazon.com. Search on “Allen Pollens.”
