A Swallow Press Book

Mexico Mystique
The Coming Sixth World of Consciousness

By Frank Waters

“This penetrating account of Mexican history, legend, myth and ancient civilizations is altogether enthralling…[Waters] is an accomplished writer whose handling of complex material never blunders into confusion.”

Publishers Weekly

In Mexico Mystique Frank Waters draws us deeply into the ancient but still-living myths of Mexico. To reveal their hidden meanings and their powerful symbolism, he brings to bear his gift for intuitive imagination as well as a broad knowledge of anthropology, Jungian psychology, astrology, and Eastern and esoteric religions. He offers a startling interpretation of the Mayan Great Cycle — our present Fifth World — whose beginning has been projected to 3113 B.C., and whose cataclysmic end has been predicted by 2011 A.D.

Frank Waters (1902–1995), one of the finest chroniclers of the American Southwest, wrote twenty–eight works of fiction and nonfiction.   More info →

The Little Lion of the Southwest
A Life of Manuel Antonio Chaves
By Marc Simmons

Manuel Antonio Chaves’ life straddled three eras of New Mexican history: he was born (1818) at the tag end of the Spanish colonial period, he grew to manhood in the rough and heady days of the Santa Fe trade during the quarter century of Mexican rule (1821-1846), and he spent his mature years under the territorial regime established by the United States.
