The author of Guatemala Profile does a close parallel in this book on Mexico. As a painter, his accent is on color, costume, custom, with occasional myths and rituals witnessed. There is little of politics, little of Mexico's social evolution. Burbank is interested in the peoples and their individuality. He saw a great deal of Mexico, from Valles to Mexico City to Guadelajara, to Patzcuara, to Oaxaca. He traveled on horse or mule back and on foot to remote regions in the interior. Not important but a pleasing visual record.
