In this extraordinary book, Menchu tells her story and through it tells the story of many. She is the voice of the masses. She does not speak of the Mayas but from them. Her voice communicates to readers the dreams and nightmares of the people and their land. This is the Mayans' story, their violation by the mercenaries and betrayal by the politicians, this sacred land where Rigoberta rises above the ruins and says, "Life astonishes me.".
