My newest book, The True History of the Caribbean Island of Cozumel is now available on Amazon books, at Amazon.com.  There are two versions: An English paperback, 6"x9", in color, 342 pages; And an English black and white paperback, 6"x9", with 342 pages.  The Spanish version is in the works. 

 

The color version is more expensive, but the color makes it much easier to see the detail in the old map engravings, codices, and manuscripts.

 

The book can be very fairly described as iconoclastic and one of my proofreaders said I will probably be burned at the stake after being tarred and feathered!

I found the link on another board and my first copy is on the way. Mostly likely, I'll end up with 2 print copies (US and Cozumel) and a Kindle version, as I have with his other book.

This will be a good one. Even before seeing it, I'd rate it a must buy for anyone with an interest in the true history of Cozumel. Ric is a very competent scientist and a very good writer. If anyone can right Cozumel history and write it well, this will be the book. I'll be proud to add it to my bookshelf.
Mayan women made pilgrimages to Cozumel to worship the Goddess Ix Chel. Cozumel was the center for Mayan fertility rituals, like going to Mecca, every women had to go at least once. Oh Ric, say it is still true! Please don't mess with the dashing pirates like Henry Morgan or Jean Lafitte who had bases here. They came long before the U.S. Air Force constructed the airport and used it as a military base during World War II. Oh Ric, I fear all good Hollywood Cozumel history may be at risk.

Now Ric, in your inquisitive dedication to uncovering Cozumel history, you already have disturbed a bees nest of highly Africanized bees. How many stingers did the Cruz Roja remove before they stopped counting?

Yay!

 

Though I'm not actually seeing a Kindle option for either the black-and-white or the full color version.
