Following ancient lifeways, Tontonac Indians of Mexico’s state of Veracruz plant a hillside in maize. Behind them rise the stately ruins of El Tajín, a metropolis built by Maya-related Huastec people. It flourished between A.D. 300 and 1100.

"Everyone who has travelled by primitive methods in an undeveloped country knows that the difference between that kind of travel and modern travel in trains, cars, etc., is the difference between life and death.
The nomad who walks or rides, with his baggage stowed on a camel or an ox-cart, may suffer every kind of discomfort, but at least he is living while he is travelling; whereas for the passenger in an express train or a luxury liner his journey is an interregnum, a kind of temporary death.”
