His book, La Puerta de los Relatos, has been published three times (first in 1999), twice in Spanish and once in English. Another of his works, Escuela Normal Rural Salaices  Formadora de Maestros was published in June, 2002. Prof. Aguayo has also earned several awards and honors. In the 1999 "Letras de Añoranza" state competition, he earned first place with his native story El Amor y el Maiz. In the 2000, his story El Trabajo y la Dignidad received second place in the national contest "La pluma del sol." At the VII Certamen Francisco I. Madero, convened by the Instituto Federal Electoral in 2001, he received honorable mention with Los Tarahumaras y las Elecciones. The work has been printed in publications by that same institute. In addition, his story El Viejo Maestro (The Old Teacher) received first place in the 2003 poetry and story contest called by Sección Octava del Sindicato Nacional de Trabajadores de la Educación, a prominent nation association of educators. Prof. Aguayo is a native of the ex-Hacienda de Salaices, and a graduate of its teachers college. His firm conducts historical and other research, and prepares articles on special and historical events for various publications. Currently, he has more historical and literary book projects underway.

Publication of this book is the culmination of a dream, the seeds of which began to germinate shortly after their marriage when Martis genealogy activities sparked Phillips interest in his own history. Though this is their first published book, both Phillip Salaices and Marti Conger bring years of knowledge from their business experience. Marti Congers interest in genealogy began with the study results about her own surname. She began researching Phillips genealogical history in 1994, focusing on the surname Salaices and its rich history. Always intrigued by things Mexican, the Salaices surname study has further expanded Martis interest in Mexican history and culture. Ms. Conger holds a Bachelor of Arts in Education degree and a Master of Education in Technology degree from Western Washington University. She is president of a business consulting firm. After many research trips to Mexico, a series of fortunate accidents allowed Phillip and Marti to join forces with Prof. José Luis Aguayo lvarez, combining their skills, knowledge, and resources, to create this book. Marti and Phillip view this book as the first in a series of projects intended to share information about the history and contributions of the Salaices family.

Phillip (Felipe) Salaices is Latino, and the son of parents who met as they migrated from their native Mexico to the US in the early 1900s. He is proud of his heritage as are most Americans. Like many other child-ren in his circumstances, Phillip worked long hours with his family in the fields during harvests. The 11th of 15 children raised by his parents, Mr. Salaices has become a highly successful and award-winning business manager. His contributions to this book stem from his desire to identify the many Salaices of Mexico, United States, and other parts of the world, and to share their rich history with them.
