Before the thirty-six-year war in Guatemala, despite the hardships the Maya people had endured since the time of the Conquest, life in their highland villages had a beauty and integrity that were changed forever by the conflict and brutal genocide that were to come. Through stories of her grandparents and parents, of the natural world, and her retellings of the stories that she was told as a young girl, Rigoberta Mench presents a rich, humorous and engaging picture of that lost world.
