Highwater, Jamake.
New York : Crowell, 1978.
Two young men -- an Englishman and an American, both decide to do something reckless before settling down to marriage, jobs and families. They set off in search of secrets of Mayan ruins buried deep under the jungle growth of Mexico and Guatemala. Their escapades with river rapids and fording streams on heavily-packed donkeys make a realistic account of what Romancing the Stone or Raiders of the Lost Ark would have been like set at the time most adventures of discovery really took place.
