Arvigo, Rosita. Sastun: One Woman’s Apprenticeship with a Maya Healer and Their Efforts to Save the Vani. San Francisco: Harper, 1995. One of the better-known books about Belize, which tells the story of the American-born author’s training with 87-year-old Elijio Panti, the best-known Maya medicine man in Central America. It takes place in the remote, roadless expanse of Cayo District in western Belize.
Schroeder, Dirk. Staying Healthy in Asia, Africa, and Latin America. Emeryville, California: Avalon Travel Publishing, 2000. An excellent resource that fits in your pocket for easy reference.
