KIRKUS REVIEW

The standard picturesque travelogue of two adventurous American women, a photographer and a painter, on a haphazard, culture-conscious trip through Guatemala. By bus, station wagon, horse, they travel from Guatemala City, Antigua, San Lucas, San P Concepcion, Chichicostenango, Quexaltenango, through the Cuchamatanes Mts. and back age painting and photographing. Here are earthquakes, native markets, revolutions, government ministers, history, myth, folk lore, religious festivals, flowers, cooking, plu the postal system -- and always the Indian. A potpourri of facts, impressions and destions of specific interest to the traveler, potential and actual.
