Humanitarian And Activist Lucia Mann Releases History Book - The Little Breadwinner
Humanitarian and activist Lucia Mann is pleased to announce the release of her new history book, The Little Breadwinner: War and Survival in the Salvadoran Heartland. Released by Aperion Books in September 2020, the book is already receiving rave reviews from readers and reviewers.
Finding Hope and Survival in The Midst of War
"There is no crown more worthy than a child breadwinner."
FROM 1980 TO 1992, A TURBULENT CIVIL WAR ravaged the Central American state of El Salvador, claiming the lives of approximately 75,000 Salvadorans. The Little Breadwinner is a story of tyrannized, frightened families—mostly poor peasants, indigenous peoples, and child farm workers—whose lives signified nothing to the military death squads.
Lucia Mann, who was in El Salvador at the time, recalls this vivid historical portrait of human rights violations during and after the “dirty” war between the military-led government and left-wing Farabundo Martí National Liberation Front. This brutal conflict was backed politically, economically, and militarily by the United States with CIA involvement.
Throughout these pages, you will experience intense trials of courageous survival with unforgettable characters who yearn for peace, justice, and normalcy. One of the brave women you will meet is Estrella Godwin Lozano (a Waorani tribe descendant of the Amazon rain forest), who suffered terribly before her brutal demise in Laredo, Texas in 2019. She was a “little person” who became traumatically affected by the abuse perpetrated by National Guard soldiers outside her pueblo home. She heroically joined the Sandinistas (Cuban-backed guerillas) to seek revenge upon the villains of her country.
The Little Breadwinner is available for purchase in print and ebook formats.
