Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Exquisite prose and wondrous storytelling have helped make Rudolfo Anaya the father of Chicano literature in English. Indeed, Anaya's tales fairly shimmer with the haunting beauty and richness of his culture. The winner of the Pen Center West Award for Fiction for his unforgettable novel Alburquerque, Anaya is perhaps best loved for his classic bestseller, Bless Me, Ultima... Antonio Marez is six years old when Ultima comes to stay with his family in New Mexico. She is a curandera, one who cures with herbs and magic. Under her wise wing, Tony will probe the family ties that bind and rend him, and he will discover himself in the magical secrets of the pagan past-a mythic legacy as palpable as the Catholicism of Latin America. And at each life turn there is Ultima, who delivered Tony into the world...and will nurture the birth of his soul.

Synopsis:

A masterpiece of Hispanic literature from "one of the nation's foremost Chicano literary artists" (Denver Post). This is the involving story of Antonio, a boy facing the conflicts in his life with the help of Ultima, a curandera who cures with herbs and magic. At each turn of Tony's life, she is there to nurture his soul.

Synopsis:

Preocupación, duda, depresión, enojo y sentimientos de condenación: todos ellos son ataques a la mente. Si los lectores sufren de pensamientos negativos, ¡pueden tomar aliento! Joyce Meyer ha ayudado a millones de personas a ganar estas batallas tan importantes. En su éxito de ventas más popular, la querida escritora y ministro muestra a los lectores cómo cambiar sus vidas cambiando sus mentes.

Ella enseña cómo manejar los miles de pensamientos que las personas piensan cada día, y cómo enfocar la mente del modo en que Dios piensa. Y comparte las pruebas, tragedias y victorias finales su propio matrimonio, familia y ministerio que le llevaron a una verdad maravillosa y transformadora; y revela sus pensamientos y sentimientos a cada paso del camino.

Synopsis:

Stories filled with wonder and the haunting beauty of his culture have helped make Rudolfo Anaya the father of Chicano literature in English, and his tales fairly shimmer with the lyric richness of his prose.

She is a curandera, one who cures with herbs and magic. Under her wise wing, Tony will test the bonds that tie him to his people, and discover himself in the pagan past, in his father's wisdom, and in his mother's Catholicism. And at each life turn there is Ultima, who delivered Tony into the world-and will nurture the birth of his soul.

A boy's coming of age with a spiritual bent. Touching, suspenseful, moments of laughter and joy. This is the second time I've read it. I listened to it this time and really enjoyed it. Great reader!

A masterful tale focused on the growth and maturity of young Antonio, Bless Me, Ultima will quickly have readers questioning their own faith and belief system. As Antonio is forced to choose between the power of God, the golden carp and nature, he forms his own belief systems from those around him. While Ultima guides Antonio on his quest for knowledge and maturity, Antonio realizes that he does not have to take a definite standpoint-he can find the middle ground and balance his own life by himself.
