Well, I liked the idea of Jalamanta's Religion and You Can lesen something about old Mexican beliefs. However, as I already knew about Indian beliefs, which are quite similar, only Jalamanta's Path of the Sun was knew to me. All in all, there were much too many repetitions - he explains his religion again and again - and it was too esoteric for my taste.
