Lyrical meditations on Mexico"Moon more than Mexico The moon's white eyewatches over skyscrapersand stone temples alike. 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 promoting newspapers, in this moving collection exuberantly illustrated by Karen Barbour."The poems in this tribute to the Mexico with the past and present show that history and modernity don't constantly meet in an easy alliance.
