Elsasser, Nan; And Others
The life stories of 21 Hispanic women of New Mexico spanning roughly four generations, are recorded in this book. Four sections ("But I Remember,""The Soul of the Home,""Little by Little," and "A Lighted Fire") develop these central themes: the shift from a rural to an urban environment; the struggle to preserve culture and traditions; changes in family relations; efforts to cope with discrimination; the striving for education; jobs and careers; service to family and community; and dedication to social change. In addition to the life stories, a number of documentary photographs and a glossary are included. (KH)
