Synopsis:

CliffsNotes on Bless Me, Ultima brings to life a search for personal identity in the context of the social changes experienced by Chicanos in New Mexico during the 1940s.

Synopsis:

This fascinating and mystical novel follows the sociopsychological maturation of a Chicano boy in New Mexico in the 1940s. A story pitting good against evil, Catholic beliefs against the "old ways," and education against the gift of intuition, it ends with acceptance and new life challenges.
