From the border towns on both sides of the Rio Grande to the barrios of East Los Angeles, this anthology of 30 short stories--published over the last 100 years--sensitively evokes the tensions and joys of Mexican-American life and represents a much ignored, but terribly significant literary voice and historical perspective.
