Reviews

"These stories fairly shimmer with the warmth, tones, and language of the Southwest."--Library Journal

"A richness of texture and images [is] characteristic of Chavez's writing. . . . These stories provide a clear glimpse into the world of New Mexico, of Hispanic customs and wisdoms, the grace that may, and did, come with a hard living." -Santa Fe Reporter

"A valuable contribution to Chicana literature." --Choice

"Chavez draws carefully detailed, emotionally convincing portraits of the lives of ordinary people" --Newsday
