    This is a great book about a nice family. I met Antonieta in Ajijic, Mexico and bought several of her beautiful tapete wall hangings.

    I met the woman who is featured in this story and have one of her weavings that i treasure. I met her in Ajijic, MX and she showed me the book so I had to come home and buy it. Interesting story that I enjoyed.

    "El libro, muestra el libro" said Senora Galan in the simple room of their home as we sipped hot chocolate against the chilly night air. Leo ran off and returned with a picture book which he presented to me, and returned to his mothers side to watch as I read. The book of course was Beneath the Stone: A Mexican Zapotec Tale, written about Leo and his family by Bernard Wolf.

    This is a book geared toward the young reader, but anyone with an interest in the Zapotec weavings and culture will find it a heartwarming and quick read. While visiting Oaxaca over Christmas I had the priviledge to meet Antoinetta in her kiosk at the Zocolo. This gracious lady introduced me to the book as well as to the beautiful works of her family.
