Undercurrents: New Mexico Stories Then and Now
Full of anecdotes in the style of the Spanish cuento, this book celebrates permanence, and change, and casts light on the lives of the varied peoples of New Mexico over many decades. Beneath a placid-seeming surface, deep Undercurrents are flowing. Gardens, mountains, deserts, caverns, brujerias, fears, dreams, children's games, good food, sharing, anger, pain and wisdom -- all these and more are here.
