Canicula: Imagenes de una Ninez Fronteriza

Ideal for intermediate- to advanced-level Spanish language or literature courses, Canicula is the Spanish version of the author's award-winning collection of short stories by the same name, which chronicles the life experiences of a Mexican family living on the Texas-Mexico border while sensitively portraying the experiences of thousands of U.S. Latinos whose voices are seldom heard. Unlike many intermediate-level readers, which anthologize standard works, this volume presents outstanding, authentic literature and themes that are highly relevant to heritage speakers in this country.
