Though written for a young adults audience, this book is interesting also to those older readers interested in literature about the Mexican experience. Some of the stories were later retold in Villasenor's "Wild Steps of Heaven" which is a much more absorbing read for the adult audience. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0385316542, Paperback)

These are the stories of Victor Villaseñor's childhood. Magical, yet true, they are fables of endurance, defeat and triumph, spirituality, and, always, of love. Handed down through the generations, the Villase-or's have been telling these family tales for years. Now, Victor shares them with his unmistakable storyteller style, complete with beautiful imagery and timeless significance.

Set against the backdrop of the Mexican revolution and his family's migration to the United States, these stories feature a cast of unforgettable characters who have in common their perseverance and courage. They encounter the supernatural, escape persecution by rebel soldiers, endure hunger, thirst and physical stress, and ultimately, transcend their circumstances to achieve their dreams. They are indeed walking stars.

Victor Villaseñor works his magic once again with these extraordinary stories.
