Publisher Comments:

This bilingual memoir by a celebrated poet paints a vivid picture of his migrant farmworker childhood. Full-color illustrations.

Synopsis:

Now available in paperback, poet Juan Felipe Herreras bilingual memoir paints a vivid picture of his migrant farmworker childhood. His rich, evocative prose re-creates the joy of eating under the open sky, celebrating at a fiesta with other farm families, and listening to his mother singing Mexican songs and his father calling the doves. “A welcome alternative to the usually bleak portrayal of the migrant farmworker experience, this is an inspirational self-portrait of a loving Latino family.” — Booklist
