This is the follow up to Rigoberta Menchús autobiography, which I have yet to, I sort of read it backwards. In any case, I've been reading a ton about the history of Guatemala during my time living here, and of course her work was some of the first on my list. I finished the book within a couple of days and am truly glad I read it...

Many parts in the book brought me to tears. She talks about winning the Nobel Peace Prize, loosing much of her family to the 36-year civil war in Guatemala
