Synopses & Reviews
Spoiler Alert: This book has practically nothing to do with parenting and barely mentions yoga. If you're looking for books on those subjects, well, you'd probably still really enjoy this book, but those aren't what this book is about. It's a gritty, grimy adventure story about friendship and crumbling walls...in Mexico. If you like true stories that are exciting, funny, informative, and evidence of the inherent goodness of humanity: Get this book!
"The ruins of the ancient Maya draw many adventurers into the jungles of Mexico and, once there, they usually find adventures aren't hard to come by. I've been on my own since the age of 16. I've survived poverty, stereotypes, predators and tumbling down mountains. I thought I was ready for anything. But when I found myself alone, in the remote jungles of Chiapas, Mexico, with no pesos, no understanding of the language, and no awareness that I was in the middle of a long-standing political revolution, it didn't take long for me to learn more about the world, and myself, than one, silly little white girl, could have ever imagined."
Walk in Donna Stewart's Yoga Mama Buddha Sandals, and you'll stumble upon Mayan ruins, Zapatistas and really big spiders. You'll come face to face with history and legend, kidnappers and temptation, friendship and heroism. You will cringe at her mistakes, but cheer her bravery. And you'll probably chuckle more than once. Adventure, humor, history and a little transformation. This is a walk worth taking.
