Cuentitos y Poemas Para Honrar a Mi Cutura

Short Stories and Poems to Honor My Culture

This collection of poems and short stories is presented to the reader in the traditional northern New Mexico Spanish of my youth. The language, which is in fact a dying dialect, is simple, comprehensible and unadorned.

Each poem and short story is a depiction of a particular moment, either real or imagined, of a distant past. The subject matters are diverse. They cover family, friendship, challenges, faith, wisdom of experience, strong work ethic, women with gumption, self-sufficiency and survival, birth, marriage, death and the deep-rooted belief, brujeria, witchcraft.
