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