Titles By Ivar Mendez
"As a sariri, I have wandered on foot through remote regions of the Andes and navigated splendid Amazonian waterways surrounded by lush biodiversity. I have immersed myself in Indigenous communities whose traditions and rituals remain unchanged from pre-Columbian times. I have also witnessed extreme poverty, especially in regions far from urban centres, that profoundly impacts children, the most vulnerable population."
The twenty essays presented in this book represent an individual perspective on the moments and places that caught my attention and stimulated my imagination."
