About the Author

SYDNEY SALTER's fascination with Mayan culture started when she was six years old and climbed down a steep, dimly lit stone staircase to the elaborately carved tomb of King Pacal who had once ruled Palenque. Visiting Mayan ruins, walking through fragrant Mexican market places, watching woman wash clothes in a river, and chasing lizards in the jungle ignited the spark in Sydney's imagination that led to writing Jungle Crossing. Sydney now lives in Utah with her husband, two daughters, two cats, and two dogs. She loves reading, writing, cooking, and traveling--especially to Mexico. She is also the author of My Big Nose and Other Natural Disasters.www.sydneysalter.com

Reviews

"Kat's snarky comments about her family and fellow tourists . . . are funny . . . This story-within-a-story of young Mulac's capture and escape from slavery takes up a good part of the novel. It's an effective device, adding depth to the plot and leading to the readers' understanding of how Kat's growth and insights come about."--Booklist
