VOLCANOES IN THE SUN: A Boy & Girl of Guatemala

Dependable travel material about children of other lands. The title somewhat obscures the instantaneous placing of the text, but it is a readable story, with more incident and less of routine day by day life and more of group background than some of its predecessors. However, I -- personally -- got more feel of the country than in many adult books I have read on the subject. The story revolves around two orphan children adopted by an old worker on a coffee plantation. The illustrations strike the pure Indian note, rather than the settings.
