Publisher Comments:

Autobiography. Latino/a Studies. BAREFOOT HEART is a vividly told autobiographical account of the life of a child growing up in a family of migrant farm workers. Elva Trevino Hart was born in south Texas to Mexican immigrants and spent her childhood moving back and forth between Texas and Minnesota, eventually leaving that world to earn a master's degree in computer science/engineering. This is a beautiful book, one many of us teaching Laino/a memoir and autobiography have long been waiting for. It is here at last, dear reader, in your hands. To be read and reread, savored to the last word. I extend a heartfelt welcome to the author and her beautiful book - Virgil Suarez, author of HAVANA THURSDAYS.

Suz, March 24, 2007 (view all comments by Suz)
Considering that I was fortunate enough to hear Elva read her work at a conference, I could hear her speaking voice throughout the heartrendingly authentic prose of 'Barefoot Heart'. The book is a memoir of the accomplishments and tribulations experienced by Elva and her family while living as Mexican immigrants in Texas and as migrant farm workers in Minnesota. The incorporation of Spanish words and phrases lends realism to the book. Although the stories are simple and generally uncomplicated, they evoke exceptionally strong emotions.
