By: Sabine R. Ulibarrí
These five bilingual tales and one novella evoke the rural life of Tierra Amarilla, a village in northern New Mexico where the author grew up. Ulibarrí weaves mystery and sympathy into his stories of carefully drawn characters who can be cruel, eccentric, hilarious, and unforgettable.First published in 1964, these enduring stories were translated for the first edition of this book in 1971. In the introduction to the present edition, literary critic Erlinda Gonzales-Berry writes that Ulibarrí?s work has long taken part in Hispano literary resistance by refusing to let traditions be forgotten. Delightful reading for anyone interested in the hues of Hispano life in northern New Mexico.
