This book tells another story. A story being written from within that landscape by the indigenous peoples of the Chaco themselves. It is one of happiness rather than poverty, as seen through their bodies, their looks, their smiles. Just to look at them is to participate in the mysteries of life itself. A life of contradictions and combinations, yes, but a life worth living. Let's take a look, then, at what this story has to offer.
