2.   Rhoads, Dorothy, Illustrated by: Charlot, Jean
The Corn Grows Ripe
Publisher: The Viking Press, 1956 New York
Book. Book condition: Very Good. Good. Hardcover 8vo - over 7 - 9" tall "Dionisio was his real name, but everybody called him Tigre - 'Jaguar.' 'The name suits, ' his mother often said. 'His skin is the wild color of the jaguar. He is spirited and mischievous and curious.' 'And lazy too, ' his great-grandmother would add. But Tigre was only twelve years old, and very dear to his father and mother. They understood his sleepy, daydreaming ways, knowing that soon enough he would be a man, with a man's work and a man's worry. How soon they could not have guessed. For Father was terribly injured by a falling tree, and suddenly there was no one but Tigre to be man of the family. ON the fearsome night when he went along through the forest to fetch the bonesetter from the distant head village, Tigre began to grow up. But The Corn Grows Ripe is more than the story of a boy's momentous year of learning to be a man among his people.It is the story of the people themselves, Maya Indians of the twentieth century living in a village in Yucatan, following the ancient customs and celebrating the traditional festivals of their age-old gods. And because corn is the most precious thing in the world to the Mayas, and the care of his family's cornfield the most important of Tigre's work, his story if full of the drama of seasons and weather sent by the gods to bless or destroy the crops. Jean Charlot's beautiful drawings - some of the best he has ever done - show vividly the strength, dignity, and grace of the Maya people and the fascinating details of their surroundings." 88 pages. Book is in good to VERY GODO condition; some rubbing to bottom edges. Dust jacket is in GOOD condition; chipping and shelfwear.
