WINGS OVER CENTRAL AMERICA

Pachita Crespi goes back to her own home in Costa Rica, from there to start out over the Central American republics and Mexico, armed with sketch books and painting materials, so as to make those countries come into being for children of North America. For the most part, she succeeds in combining factual data, for the geography minded child, with enough of the people and the way they live to catch the interest of the child not concerned with physical characteristics, crops, climate, occupations. This is the next best way to seeing for yourselves how other people- not far distant neighbors- live. She makes the countries individual and different, and her sketches will give a sense of costume and decoration as well.
