This is the first novel ever written in the native Mayan language, aboug a village in Guatemala. It's brutally sad, documenting the oppression of the Indians, but also sweet in a way, because he's trying so hard to capture the goodness of the old ways before they're gone forever. This may not be excellent literature, but it's still a powerful book, and a unique view into a way of life that we very rarely have an opportunity to learn about.
