Ramona, Rebel Dreamweaver

Juan Machin

Schools For Chiapas  has translated Juan Machin’s delightful storybook about Comandanta Ramona, ” the indigenous Tzotzil woman of corn, dark as the color of the earth, with a red huipil blouse and obsidian eyes hidden behind a black ski mask, small in stature but giant in dignity.”
This easy-to-read short book tells the almost magical story of the legendary Zapatista leader and is accompanied by a set of beautiful watercolor drawings by the author.
