"Life Among the Artists and Cowboys" - A Series By Michael Allan

Juan Mata Ort=EDz is a small village of potters and cowboys in Northern
Chihuahua. Williams writes articles every so often on one of the
potters, or a family fiesta. Not all the articles show pots, and the
people of the village are not vegetarians, but there is some lovely
work to be seen. For instance, the page:=20

has the stories of three potting families and pictures of some lovely
decorated pots. =20
