In the Mountains of Morazan

by Mandy Macdonald and Mike Gatehouse - £19.95  Latin America Bureau (1995)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780906156940 | ISBN 10: 0906156947

After years of exile in neighbouring Honduras, 8,000 refugees returned to the mountains of Morazan in El Salvador. There they founded Segundo Montes City, named after a Jesuit priest killed by the army. 'In the Mountains of Morazan' is the extraordinary story of Segundo Montes, told by the community's men and women, and interspersed with vivid descriptions of daily life in this remote corner of El Salvador. Alongside memories of war and exile, thorny questions are raised about the community's development. Can Segundo Montes survive without foreign aid? How far has it been absorbed into a national society? Have the 1992 Peace Accords healed the wounds of a violent past?
