Temples of the Sun and Moon: A Mexican Journey

Swan, Michael, Temples of the Sun and Moon: a Mexican journey, London: Jonathan Cape, 1954.

From the cover:
Part of Michael Swan’s intention is to show how the ancient cultures and traditions affect Mexico as the traveler sees it today. He mingled easily with Mexicans of all kinds, and gives a fresh and lively view of them, whether he is writing of Zapotec Indians, the ‘golden women’ of Tehuantepec, smart life in Mexico City, or the ‘secret convent’ of Puebla which was maintained for some fifty years after convents had been dissolved.
