Still on Vacation

Autor: Ilean Baltodano ,

Número de Páginas: 132

This memoir is the true story of an immigrant working mother whose journey led to an unintentional long-term vacation to the United States of America. Her story is filled with a myriad of learning experiences, inspiration, hard work, struggle, and loss. Her story illustrates her tenacity throughout the struggles of adapting to a different culture, learning a new language, working for a major organization, attending college, raising five daughters, losing her husband to cancer, and finally finding purpose and a new home. This three-week vacation became a grand adventure. Her advice is to keep in mind you might be taken to a place you never expected; but, no doubt, life is so unpredictable. Have faith that you are precisely where you are supposed to be.

La Morenita

Autor: Guadalupe Cordoba ,

Número de Páginas: 148

Success-it's something everyone hopes for but few have the fortitude and endurance necessary to achieve it, especially when confronted by one adversity after another. Lupe Cordoba knows that hard work and determination are the traits necessary to achieve success, and she used these strong personal qualities to rise to her position as a nationally acclaimed restaurateur. Cordoba seemed to encounter nothing but hardships and obstacles throughout her life, and in La Morenita: The Story of Lupe Cordoba, she candidly illustrates how her life developed from an idyllic childhood in a small Mexican town to the collapse of her marriage after succeeding in reaching America with her three small children. Perseverance and clever thinking carried Cordoba from the plight of sleeping in her car to opening her first restaurant to preparing hors d'oeuvres for a party for President Clinton. While conveying her talent for balancing romance, motherhood, and business in her life, Cordoba offers frank advice for others in her position and presents intimate portraits of her family and friends and the lives they endured to reach their current plateau. La Morenita delivers the compelling story of one...

Marathon

Marathon

Autor: Jorge Cuevas ,

Red circle: #YourMarathon is what moves you, what gives you hope, and what makes you get out of bed every morning without an alarm clock. What ́s your marathon? Are you already running it? Are you about to take off? Are you just receiving the calling? Marathon, the challenge that requires preparation, courage, passion, and guts so that you can face off with yourself. This is not a book about the advantages of running, nor does it contain tips to improve your scores. Rather, these pages get us closer to the war that as a Marathon runner every person fights in their head, which is the same battle that you deal with when you want to go beyond your limits and reach your own goals. The arena for this battle isn ́t a track, it ́s in the mind: that place where in some moments you ́re a slave, an insurgent, a lover, a conquistador, a victim, a criminal, a gladiator, or even a Jedi Knight. Marathon is an intense book, intimate and original, in which you ́ll tour Mexico City, Paris, Papantla, Houston, and Rome. You ́ll visit the heart of the most emblematic competition in track and field and, between euphoria, frustration, searching, music, and revenge, you ́ll run 42 kilometers of...

'Qué aspecto tiene una inmigrante indocumentada? 'De qué tipo de familia proviene? 'Cómo consigue entrar a este país? 'Cuál es el verdadero precio que debe pagar para quedarse en los Estados Unidos? Julissa Arce sabe por experiencia propia que las respuestas más comunes y preconcebidas a esas preguntas son con frecuencia demasiado sencillas, y a veces totalmente erróneas.A primera vista, Arce ha alcanzado el sueño americano: al conseguir finalmente un empleo muy codiciado en Wall Street después de años de esfuerzo académico.

We the Dreamers

We the Dreamers

Autor: Josefina Vázquez Mota ,

DREAMer: a young visionary, an undocumented immigrant, who wants to achieve the American Dream. As of August 2016 it was estimated that some 35 million Mexicans were living in the United States, 23.5 million of whom were born in the United States and 11.5 million in Mexico. Of the latter, only 5 million are undocumented and of them, 1.3 million are considered DREAMers: young people who were taken to the United States by their parents when they were children, who grew up and were educated in this country, and who -because of their illegal status- face daunting obstacles to develop professionally. This, however, does not prevent them from dreaming. In We the DREAMers, Josefina Vázquez Mota explores the laws and statistics, and above all highlights the narratives and emotions behind the life stories of these DREAMers whose only objectiveis to fulfill their dreams. Their testimonies offer a kaleidoscope of viewpoints, pinpointing many obstacles. Nevertheless, they are voices of young people who have not given up; instead they have created or joined activist groups alongside many other people who, like them, just want to be heard and acknowledged. This volume introduces you to some of ...

The exhausted Union cavalry company under the command of Col. Philip Creighton arrives at Howard Hill plantation where they find five frightened women living alone. Philip informs Caroline Howard, the widowed mistress of the plantation, that they are confiscating her home for a few days of rest. But those few days stretch into the nearly- ten month siege of Petersburg, Virginia. Watching Caroline cope with the stress of constant bombardments of the nearby city, the endless numbers of Union wounded arriving daily, and a mother-in-law who is slowly going mad, Philip feels compelled to provide her with sorely-needed food and necessities, as well as seeing to her safety from his own men. Shortly thereafter, he is seriously wounded, nearly fulfilling his wish to die in battle. Through Carolines care, he learns to trust again and at last finds all hes been seeking in life. After recovering his health, Philip again sees action where he suffers a severe concussion that leaves him temporarily blind. This blindness forces him to acknowledge at last his feelings for Caroline Howard. His war experiences transform Philip from bitter disillusionment to a completely different perspective of his...

Lila´s sorrows

Lila´s sorrows

Autor: José Prats Sariol ,

Número de Páginas: 332

Lila is a simply unforgettable adventure. The past is evoked with affection and authentic compassion, at times infused with a little bit of humor […] It is not easy, and much less common, to find a text that is so balanced yet moving at the same time. The story has a profound impact without indulging in melodrama. In her letters, the main character holds on to her memories like a shipwreck survivor clings to hope. Prats Sariol has given us an epistolary novel and a crime novel all in one. The murder mystery is not solved until the very end; it is only in the last line that we find out how Lila and her good friend and accomplice in life, Virginia, died. This is something that only the best novels achieve without resorting to false trickery. The present is taken one day at a time, without asking for too much: being grateful is a virtue. The future, on the other hand, is revealed in conjunction with each reunion, especially the one with the beloved Valerio, late at night, somewhere in Europe. But I will say no more; read for yourself and enjoy. In Lila’s words: “I’ve just registered my exile. Tomorrow, in some corner, another foreigner will wave his handkerchief.” Eliseo...

Sixteen-year-old Emilia Moretti's goal for the summer is simple: forget her brother's best friend—Nick Grawski—ever existed.

She'll need flawless ballet movements to have a shot at next year's showcase, and she's finally ready to search for her birth parents. But when Nick decides to stay in the city, Emilia's resolve disappears in a pirouette. Maybe it's the spin they needed to be together.

JUST THE WAY IT WAS

JUST THE WAY IT WAS

Autor: Mario Ignacio Zunzunegui ,

Número de Páginas: 284

This book is a simple and humble gift, a present, a legacy of past life and love. It is a tale of many joys, laughs, and even laughter, as well as tears that sometimes came to be shed. It is a small present without any monetary or significant value of any commercial interest. Nevertheless, it is very exclusive because only the author can make this gift, because within the gift there are many experiences and anecdotes of a lifetime that only he is aware of. It is a gift that may one day be useful to dad or mom, when their son or daughter asks you to tell a story. Well, finally in decades to come, this dusty and forgotten old gift might have served for something useful. At the request of my great friend Mario Ignacio Zunzunegui, I allow myself to review his book where he captures his memoir with absolute reality. We first met many years ago through the sport of rock and high mountain climbing in Mexico City. I wish to testify that Mario recounts with absolute veracity events in his book and in which he cites me as an active participant. I congratulate Mario for his excellent memory in recounting those events in which he names my sister, Yoselinda, and me. We planned a trip to climb...

EVERYTHING WILL BE ALRIGHT

EVERYTHING WILL BE ALRIGHT

Autor: Nayeli Pereznegrón ,

We often hear or say “everything will be alright” as a form of encouragement when someone is going through hardship. However, have we ever really thought about who we are putting our trust in? This phrase becomes much more meaningful when said by a two-year old boy. At age one, Luis Pablo was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia m7, a very aggressive form of cancer which presented a big challenge to his doctors. His case was always considered high risk and defied all medical standards. The need for blood and platelet donors motivated Luis Pablo’s parents to share his story on social media. This started a movement of love and solidarity that made everyone involved understand that we can only be certain that everything will be alright when we fully trust God and put everything in His hands, because it is all part of a perfect plan.

Número de Páginas: 204

As is normally the case, every person wants to feel love, security, and develop a reputation of integrity. We all desire to be capable, strong, courageous, and able to face the perverse pressures of everyday life, both spiritually and personally. It is a constant struggle not to give in to the countless temptations experienced and the war for standing firm and guarding the heart from disappoints (the central organ of our body) by turning it into an oasis from which arise currents of peace flowing with spiritual, mental, and emotional health observations. This book encapsulates many experiences I have overcome through my God-given strength and unwavering faith, which can allow the Holy Spirit to empower us all and to arise victorious despite the circumstances.

Autor: Carlos Montemayor , Donald Frischmann ,

Número de Páginas: 304

As part of the larger, ongoing movement throughout Latin America to reclaim non-Hispanic cultural heritages and identities, indigenous writers in Mexico are reappropriating the written word in their ancestral tongues and in Spanish. As a result, the long-marginalized, innermost feelings, needs, and worldviews of Mexico's ten to twenty million indigenous peoples are now being widely revealed to the Western societies with which these peoples coexist. To contribute to this process and serve as a bridge of intercultural communication and understanding, this groundbreaking, three-volume anthology gathers works by the leading generation of writers in thirteen Mexican indigenous languages: Nahuatl, Maya, Tzotzil, Tzeltal, Tojolabal, Tabasco Chontal, Purepecha, Sierra Zapoteco, Isthmus Zapoteco, Mazateco, Ñahñu, Totonaco, and Huichol. Volume Three contains plays by six Mexican indigenous writers. Their plays appear first in their native language, followed by English and Spanish translations. Montemayor and Frischmann have abundantly annotated the Spanish, English, and indigenous-language texts and added glossaries and essays that introduce the work of each playwright and discuss the...
