The Hero Twins: Against the Lords of Death (A Mayan Myth) is a fun and clever story based on one of the tales of the Mayan book Popol Vuh. The Hero Twins Hunter and Jaguar Deer are two clever and fun-loving boys who are blessed with super powers and astonishing skill at the traditional Mayan ball game of Pok-a-tok. But their skill soon angers the Lords of Death, rulers of the Mayan underworld. The Lords of Death invite the twins to the underworld and attempt to kill them through a series of clever challenges. However, the twins are quite clever themselves, and prove to be more than a match for these dangerous challenges.
