Read The World - Guatemala - The Guatemala Reader

Book: The Guatemala Reader
Author: Greg Grandon
Pages: 688
Book takes place in the country: YES
Author is from the country: NO
I have visited: NO

This is my first book for 2020!

I decided to start with a monster size book since when I started it, we were still on vacation.  I started this one at the end of December, but it took quite awhile to finish it.

This book gives a broad review of Guatemala as a country.  Politics, culture, history, livelihood - it is all in this book.  It gives a wide perpsective on the country's long history of violence.  It includes short stories, historical facts, poems, letters, pictures, artwork....the list is long.  

This book was good.  It was better than I expected.  When it arrived I looked at the size of it, and thought it would read more like an encelopedia, but it did not.  The is really well written and full of great information.  You get a complete picture of Guatemala from so many different aspects of this country.  With so many sources contributing to this book, you get a wide variety of chapters that will keep you wanting to learn more.  Glad I found this one.
