A fascinating picture book biography of Benito Juárez, president of Mexico during its tumultuous time of Liberal Reform.

From the incredible illustrator of Dreams from Many Rivers comes the story of Benito Juárez, a man who devoted himself to his country and became president of Mexico.

Juárez grew up in a village filled with orange trees, surrounded by the mountains of Oaxaca. As he got older, he wondered: How could such a paradise be home to hungry children, temples in ruins, and shacks made out of straw and branches? Armed with a deep-seated belief in justice, he set out to make a difference.

Following Juárez from his childhood to his career in politics, this is a story of hope and determination.
