About the book:

Lyrical meditations on Mexico

"Moon over Mexico
The moons white eye
watches over skyscrapers
and stone temples alike."

The poems in this tribute to the Mexico of the past and present show that history and modernity dont always meet in an easy alliance. With respect and passion for the lore and legend of its old civilizations, and concern and hope for the Mexico of today, Tony Johnston takes us from Mexico City to Oaxaca to Chiapas, from the Aztec god Quetzalcoatl to a shoeless boy selling newspapers, in this moving collection exuberantly illustrated by Karen Barbour.
