About the Author

Estela Portillo Trambley was a writer and award-winning playwright from El Paso, Texas. She was the granddaughter of Mexican immigrants, and graduated with a degree in English literature from the University of Texas-El Paso. She taught in the El Paso public school system, and was one of the founders of Los Pobres, the first Hispanic Theater in El Paso. Trambley also hosted a local political radio talk show called Stella Says in Texas. Her play Blacklight won second place in the 1985 New York Shakespeare Festival's Hispanic American playwright's competition. In 1986, she was inducted into the El Paso Woman's Hall of Fame, and was named Author of the Pass by the El Paso Herald Post in 1990. The publication of Sor Juana and Other Plays brought her widespread critical acclaim and national attention. Trini is her only novel.


"An engrossing tale . . . Trambley convincingly conveys the beauty, magic, and harshness of Tarahumara country in this fine effort." --Books of the Southwest

"Trini is a coming-of-age story rich with romance and drama, with miracles and mysteries. This rare glimpse into life in the Tarahumara region of Mexico explores a complex web that includes the power of love and faith--both Catholic and rooted in indigenous traditions and values. The reprinting of this novel is significant in the history of Chicana literature, and will introduce new readers to the journeys of the resilient Trini." --Pat Mora, author of House of Houses
