From the incredible illustrator of Dreams from Many Rivers comes the story of Benito Juárez, a man who devoted himself to his country and became president of Mexico.
Juárez grew up in a village filled with orange trees, surrounded by the mountains of Oaxaca. As he got older, he wondered: How could such a paradise be home to hungry children, temples in ruins, and shacks made out of straw and branches? Armed with a deep-seated belief in justice, he set out to make a difference.
Following Juárez from his childhood to his career in politics, this is a story of hope and determination.
