Centuries ago, in the darkest jungles of Mexico, a young boy named Xichantl witnessed his father and most of his tribe follow the hallowed jaguar into the Graylands, never to be seen again. Now, a divorced mother and her two daughters from the United States go to Mexico for a summer vacation and stumble upon an ancient box that transforms their lives and could change the world. Set in the sultry and mysterious jungles of Mexico, the story revolves around several interesting characters who are after the same thing-each for a different reason. What happened to the ancient native civilizations of Mexico and Central America, which disappeared without a trace? The Mayan and Aztec cultures left important archaeological sites in Middle America before their civilizations vanished from this earth. While various theories attempt to explain these phenomena, nothing definitive has been proven, yet. Hayman's The Cult of the Jaguar, deals with this fascinating mystery and offers an intriguing and plausible answer to the question, "What really happened to the Aztecs and the Mayans, and the Cult of the Jaguar?" While researching these ancient cultures, their customs and rituals, Hayman discovered that there actually was a tribe in the deep jungles of Mexico that worshipped the jaguar, making this work all the more exciting to her. To this day, there is no definitive explanation for why or how so many people abandoned their cities and instantly vanished. Setting aside the scientific theories of sudden plagues causing massive deaths, devastating in-fighting among tribes, and unexpected mass migrations, Hayman explores an idea that has yet to be discussed.
