"Centered upon contemporary daily life in a small village on the shores of Lake Atitlan, Guatemala, Campesino illustrates the complex interrelationships among local, national, and international events. Written in a simple and readable style, the diary will be valuable not only for anthropology students, but for anyone interested in contemporary Guatemala and Central America."--Choice

This is a book that anyone interested in ethnic studies and in humanity in general should read."--Explorations in Sights and Sounds

"This volume is an instant classic."--Latin America in Books

"Prof. Sexton is to be highly recommended of another excellent work which will be very useful to scholars and lay readers truly interested in the life and struggles of the Indian peoples."--Latin American Indian Literatures Journal
