The illustrations display [Miriam Rudolph]'s unique visual style, a style influenced by maps, memories and "way-finding"; her work was featured in "Printing places," Canadian Mennonite, June 13, 2011, page 35. "I had a lot of fun making all the illustration panels fit together so that the whole long journey became more apparent',' she says."Moving around seems to be a common Mennonite theme," says Rudolph. "I hope that the book might put Paraguay on the map for some people, since it is rarely talked about. I often get asked, 'So where exactly is Paraguay and what is it like?' Maybe the book will at least partially answer that question. It is such a beautiful, but also poor, forgotten little country. I wanted to somehow show it to people."
