Escaping the Fire
by Tomas Guzaro

During the height of the Guatemalan civil war, Tomás Guzaro, a Mayan evangelical pastor, led more than two hundred fellow Mayas out of guerrilla-controlled Ixil territory and into safety. Guzaro relates the hardships common to most Mayas and the resulting unrest that opened the door to civil war.

Riveting and highly personal, Guzaro does a great job of showing what it was like to live through Guatemala's civil war.
