Like seven rivers, seven streams of water that filter to the last corners, seven writers started a trip through Chiapas. One morning they woke up, opened their eyes and gave a start to the common journey if they had never heard of that state, their exuberance or their poverty. As if suddenly, by an inexplicable trick, had fallen under the mantle of that intense blue of the sky of Chiapas. Emiliano Perez Cruz, Agustin Cadena, Monica Lavin, Eduardo Villegas Guevara, Josefina Estrada, Fidencio Gonzalez Montes and Eusebio Ruvalcaba, are the protagonists of this chronicle of our days. Five men and two women who traveled behind the essence of Chiapas. Seven chroniclers, each one owning a particular style, armed with their trade and observation, will and good faith, in short everyone owning their own voice. The result, reader, is this book that you now have in your hands. A volume that will surely contribute to explain the complex reality of Chiapas.
