In the Temples of My Fathers is a fantasy family saga that is mostly about two Maya Indian brothers and is set in the jungles of Central America in what is today western Belize, around 1000 A.D. After two centuries of constant warfare Mayan civilization has disintegrated, and most of the survivors have moved north to start over with a new civilization. There are small villages of stragglers, however, who are too attached to their homelands to leave them, and these survivors have clung to the old ways while slowly changing their culture to adapt to the new circumstances. This novel follows one such character from boyhood to manhood, as he becomes the storyteller for his village, and his older brother, who becomes a fruit and honey gatherer. During the course of the story the older brother is murdered by a malevolent spirit, and the storyteller brother decides to take revenge in the name of his family.
