Beneath the Stone: A Mexican Zapotec Tale Reviews
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.
I thought the book was larger
the book is great! and the shipping and the service was great! thanx 1 hell of a lot! and have a nice day! ya'll!
"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.
