Beyond the Volcano
Julie Lamin (2019)

When the only thing you have left to lose is your life, would you choose to fight for the lives of others?  Fifteen year-old Stella, Walter and Leonie want to go to school, but when the National Army of Sharrowland declares war on young people over fourteen, their only hope of staying alive is to join the Resistance. Like them, Oscar and Freddie also endure the hardships of war and share their dream of a free and peaceful Sharrowland.  
Inspired by a three-week stay in Nicaragua in 2017, ‘Beyond the Volcano’
is about hope and the belief that when brave young people work together, they can achieve the future they deserve. 

For young adults (12+) and other adults too!

Rosa of the Wild Grass; the Story of a Nicaraguan Family
Fiona Macintosh  (Latin America Bureau & Practical Action Publishing, 2016)

During the 1980s the author became friendly with Rosa, a woman from a peasant family and later returned many times to visit and record her. These stories of three generations are illustrated with beautiful woodcut-style images.  

Under the Somoza dictatorship, Rosa’s testimony of life with the Sandinista rebels during the insurrection is wrought with anxiety. Then she shares her optimism for the changes brought by the 1979 revolution - that is until the destruction of the contra War and the electoral defeat of the Sandinista government. Over the subsequent decades Rosa and her family show how those social programmes they fought for were cut, bringing back poverty and social breakdown. Yet throughout, Rosa tells how the 'seeds of wild grass' have kept growing: tiny community initiatives that enable families and communities to survive enormous hardship.  

Rosa is a superb read, full of the realities of peasant family life, the Catholic Church, magical beliefs, community spirit and cooperatives, the transition from rural to city life and back… and the problems: machismo, drink, violence, petty corruption, money-lenders, and the quest for work by migrating to Costa Rica and the USA.
