This book will take us behind the scenes of her stardom and inside the music business. Jenni Rivera, a gentle woman often filled with doubt. A spiritual woman who lived in faith. A woman who gave of herself deeply to the community. A woman who wanted nothing more than to be loved, but who could find it only onstage. Told through Pete Salgado's and Gabriel Vazquez's perspectives; both were Jenn's managers, and they share stories about the life of Dolores that no one knew and did not see onstage....
"Get to meet the real Jenni as a person!"
A research trip to Guatemala illuminates truths both intimate and global for four young travelers. The graduate students arrived in Guatemala energized and ready to take on the world. They planned to follow the path of coffee beans from a peasant coffee-growing community in the western highlands through the chain of buyers, co-ops, exporters, and roasters, all the way to a café in San Francisco. As the students investigate the profit made at every link in the coffee chain, they confront a series of unexpected events that illuminate globalization in surprising ways.
