Description

Victor Villaseñor creates a powerful, moving protrait of his father's family - the Villaseñors - who in their courage and love of life represent the whole passionate history of Mexico. An epic portrait of Mexico is painted as this spellbinding story of madness and miracles, rage and redemption, unfolds.

Margarita...wild of heart and powerful in her earthborn mystery is the indomitable Indian matriarch who guards her family and conquers her enemies with the cutting edge of unconditional love - and a touch of magic. As a young woman, she was swept away by Juan Jesus Villaseñor, a powerful arrogant man who carried the blood of Spanish royalty in his veins - and who, unarmed, once wrestled with the great serpent that held his village hostage - and won.

Together, Don Juan and Dona Margarita would create a dynasty on the eve of the Mexican Revolution. Their daughters...Emilia and Luisa, beautiful, sensuous, mysterious, who find courage and endurance in their mother's faith, and searing, explosive passion amid the turmoil of war. Their sons...Jose, who becomes a legendary horseman and a hero of the revolution. And Juan, the youngest, Victor Villaseñor's father, through whose eyes this brilliant, tumultuous saga unfolds.

  • (4/5)
    This story of Victor Villasenor's father and the struggle of his family and friends during the Mexican Revolution immediately draws the reader in and holds him/her spellbound. The author writes with awareness, understanding, humor, pathos, and compassion in telling a story of a boy turned man and his quest for justice and a better life. The small town in the Mexican mountains though poor in "cosas" is rich in "familia", "amigos" y "tradiciones". This is a book that makes the reader "feel"!
