For students and general readers, Gold (Latin American literature, U. of New Hampshire) describes the culture and customs of Honduras. She covers the country's national identity and regional and linguistic diversity, indigenous peoples, religion, daily life, food, dress, sports, media, literature and oral tradition, traditional artisanry and handcrafts, and visual and performing arts. She includes information about individuals and contributions not easily accessible in English and gives less attention to topics extensively documented in English elsewhere, such as the Mayan civilization of Copán.
