That's the whole broken spears books (except for the notes).

I messed up on the Popul Vuh book link. Here it is:
http://www.geocities.com/athens/acad...olvuhmain.html
It's the whole book.

The third link from the top is books that I have read, own, or want that a majority are hard to find.

You can access thousands of books online for free thanks to Project Gutenberg. This project is aimed at converting books into e-books. An army of volunteers scan, OCR, or manually type all the pages of a book to produce an e-book. These books are those that have exhausted their copyright protection and can be freely distributed. For you college people, you might want to check these archives before buying books. I have found books online and therefore did not have to buy them. Check out these sites:

wiki has a project going similar to guttenberg

here is one on U.S. History, (yes the stuff about the natives needs work)

such as this section

North American Cultures

While the Mayan, Aztec, and Inca cultures can be classified as civilizations, the cultures that lived in the present day United States and Canada cannot, as they lacked written communication, domestication of animals, and government, among other things.



http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/US_History:Pre-Columbian


but anyone can edit it.
