Granddaughters of Corn

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
A sure way to destroy a race is by the systematic massacre of its women and children. This collection of personal narratives from Mayan Indian women who are undergoing that horror tell of villages destroyed, husbands and childrenas well as themselvesthe targets of death squads. It is a horrible story, sure to make Americans recoil at U.S. complicity. The black-and-white photographs, part of a traveling national exhibit, show the beautiful faces of these women and their weaving, through which they are determined to keep their culture alive. A worthy book, similar in scope to Jean-Marie Simon's Guatemala: Nation of Prisoners (LJ 11/1/87). Recommended for general, Latin American, and women's studies collections.
