Fiesta Femenina: Celebrating Women in Mexican Folktaleby Mary-Joan Gerson, Maya Christina Gonzalez, Maya Christina Gonzalez
Deep in the lush Mexican forests, amidst the tall mountains and the rushing rivers, dwells a great goddess. Her broad torso bends to form the sky and her legs rise to become the valleys and deserts. She is the earth, the land of Mexico, and if you listen closely, you will hear her calling "tengo hambre, tengo hambre," for she is always hungry.
Gifted storyteller Mary-Joan Gerson draws from Mexico's rich cultural traditions, including tales from the Mayan, Mixtec and Yaqui peoples to create an authentic collection that reflects the many faces of Mexico's heroines. And Maya Christina Gonzalez's vibrant paintings brilliantly capture the spark behind the stories, and the noble dignity of these eight extraordinary women.
A collection that will be enjoyed time and time again, this is truly a fiesta -- for the eyes, the spirit and the heart.
