Notes: "In Grandma's Santo on Its Head: Stories of Days Gone By in Hispanic Villages of New Mexico, I have endeavored to re-create facets of our rich cultural heritage in rural New Mexico. The bilingual accounts, which I translated myself, are creations of my own imagination, but they do emphasize a realistic portrayal of events and characters and their modus vivendi . . . . The English version of each story is accompanied by a brief essay that puts in perspective the historical and cultural importance of the topic"--Preface.
