The Day of the Dead in Oaxaca: When Two Worlds Meet in Oaxaca

Synopsis

"The Day of the Dead is the most important annual celebration in Oaxaca, Mexico. Combining textual information and photographic imagery, this book begins with a discussion of the people of Oaxaca, their way of life, and their way of looking at the world. It then takes the reader through the celebration from the preparations that can begin months in advance through to the private gatherings in the homes and finally to the cemetery where the villagers celebrate together - both the living and the dead."
