The Popol Vuh is the story of creation according to the Quiche Maya of the region known today as Guatemala

The Popol Vuh is the story of creation according to the Quiche Maya of the region known today as Guatemala. The Popol Vuh was probably written c. 1554-1558 CE at a time when it had become abundantly clear that the ancient beliefs and practices of the Maya would no longer be tolerated by their Christian conquerors. Dennis Tedlock determines this date based upon textual evidence toward the end of the work in which the author details migrations, genealogies, and settlements.

The Popol Vuh, or Sacred Book of the ancient Quiché Maya, as it has been happily subtitled, is, beyond any shadow of doubt, the most distinguished example of native American literature that has survived the passing centuries. The original redaction of this most precious fragment of ancient American learning is now lost; however, it seems first to have been reduced to writing (in characters of the Latin script), in the middle of the sixteenth century, from oral traditions then current among the Quiché, by some unknown but highly educated, not to say literary, member of that race.

Popol Vuh (also Popol Wuj or Popul Vuh) is a text recounting the mythology and history of the Kʼicheʼ people, one of the Maya peoples, who inhabit the Guatemalan Highlands northwest of present-day Guatemala City. The Popol Vuh is a foundation narrative of the Kʼicheʼ before the Spanish conquest of Guatemala. It includes the Mayan creation myth, the exploits of the Hero Twins Hunahpú and Xbalanqué, and a chronicle of the Kʼicheʼ people.

"Albertina Saravia'Enriquez is a graduate of the Faculty of History, University of San Carlos of Guatemala, lecturer and author of several articles and books on Indian life. This English edition of the Popol Wuh is a translation from Miss Saravia's Spanish version, published by Editorial Porrúa, Mexico --a best seller that has been reprinted more than fourteen times and distributed throughout Latin America. The Popol Wuh is regarded all over the world as one of the most important works in the literature of the Americas, because it contains fragments of cosmogony, religion, mythology, as well as the traditions relating to the migrations and the history of the pre-Columbian world. What makes this particular version of the Popol Wuh so unique is the author's careful selection from the drawings of the Mayan Codices. The pages of this book rsemble those of the Mayan Codices: the Tro-Cortesianus, the Peresianus and the Dresdensis." [Excertp from back cover's notes.] The book includes a glossary of Mayan words.
