Synopsis: Provides a look into the life of the Latin American woman and winner of the 1992 Nobel Peace Prize, who spread her message throughout Guatemala in the search for human rights for her people, the Maya, against the cruel and unlawful treatment they endured from powerful landowners.
From Kirkus Reviews: For chapter-book readers, an accessible and informative illustrated biography of the winner of the 1992 Nobel Peace Prize, tracing Mench£'s hard life from birth in a remote Mayan village in the mountains of Guatemala to the present. Brill (Allen Jay and the Underground Railroad, 1993, etc.) calmly details the horrors suffered by indigenous peoples under the power of the ladinos (people who are both Mayan and Spanish, or who reject their Mayan heritage)--the seizures of farmland, the theft of food, the brutal treatment and slaughter of those who objected, the literal voicelessness of the Mayas, most of whom spoke no Spanish or even the dialects of other villages. The backbreaking work Mench£ did as a child--on a coffee plantation and later as a maid--gave rise to her intent to help her people, as her father had. Her exhaustive tours of speaking in the Americas and abroad broke ``the silence around Guatemala'' and brought international support. A generous smile beams from the book's black-and-white photographs of this modern heroine; from nowhere, with nothing, Mench£ gave dignity to a people and became a role model to the world.

From Booklist: "The winner of the 1992 Nobel Peace Prize, Rigoberta Menchuis a poor, uneducated Mayan woman who has helped her native people fight oppression in Guatemala and who has told the world about their suffering. Part of the Rainbow Biography series, the account is quiet, but it tells of violence and poverty and amazing courage. Beginning with Menchu's childhood as a field laborer, her personal story is woven together with that of her Indian people and their harsh dislocation at the hands of the landowners and the brutal army. Her father was imprisoned, tortured, and finally murdered for his leadership role in the resistance; so were her mother and her brothers and sisters. Yet, like her father, she has led her people in nonviolent resistance and has given them a voice. There are end notes for direct quotes, a glossary, a map, and a bibliography of books about Guatemala, with black-and-white photos and illustrations throughout.". Bookseller Inventory # 011065
