The beauty of the village of Candelaria, nestled in the highlands of Guatemala, belies the harsh existence of those who live there. The corn-fields are too small to support the families who own them, and despite unending labor, most remain very poor. Amid the daily struggle to survive, the women of Candelaria -- strong, deeply religious, and amazingly resilient -- have emerged as the heart of their community. Their activities -- from gathering firewood and fetching water to grinding corn for handmade tortillas and weaving the colorful fabric unique to the villages of Guatemala -- are documented here through Mary Richardson Miller's stirring photography and personal narrative.
