The unwritten chapters of the Mayan Popol Vuh are related in The Myth of Time by sharing the story of a boy, the Dark-Eyed One, and his transformation into manhood. The story takes place in a world where a holocaust has just occurred and we follow the Dark-Eyed One through his creation, experiences as a child soldier, first love, and ultimately The Revelation.
