Book Description

A book designed to awaken inter­est in the his­tory, art, tra­di­tions, and con­tri­bu­tions of the Spanish-speaking world. Var­i­ous chap­ters explore the indige­nous cul­tures of Mex­ico, Cen­tral, and South Amer­ica, as well as the gifts of these cul­tures to the world. A chap­ter on the Teatro Campesino high­lights the con­tin­u­ing cre­ativ­ity of Latino culture.

The oversized design of this book allows for magnificent photographs that present to the reader the richness of the architecture, sculpture, paintings, jewelry, and literature of the ancient cultures of Latin America.
