Caminata by Lori DiPrete Brown

SKU: 9780615863818

CAMINATA tells the story of Beth Pellegrino, a young woman who goes to Honduras to help the orphaned girls of La Casa de los Niños. In the course of her work, Beth accompanies four of the girls on a journey, or "caminata," to their birthplaces. Each of the journeys takes the reader to a different Honduran landscape, from a coffee plantation, to a rural town where people make their living from basket weaving, to unexplored caves among Mayan Ruins. Their journeys explore different aspects of motherlessness, identity, and coming of age, charting a sometimes-painful path toward self-realization — not only for the girls, but for Beth herself.
