My Land Sings

(1999)
A collection of stories by

 
A magical collection of 10 stories based on the folklore and oral traditions of Mexican and Native American cuentistas

Rich in the folklore of his ancestors, Rudolfo Anaya's tales will delight young readers from across the globe. In stories both original and passed down, this bestselling author incorporates powerful themes of family, faith, and choosing the right path in life. In "Lupe and la Llorona," a 7th grader searches for the legendary Llorana; in "The Shepard Who Knew the Language of Animals," a shepherd named Abel saves a snake and gains the ability to understand the language of animals; In "Dulcinea," a 15-year-old dances with the Devil. Other tales feature coyotes, ravens, a woodcutter who tries to cheat death, the Virgin Mary, a golden carp, and a young Latino who seeks immortality.

Deeply rooted in ancient mythological beliefs, these accounts of enchantment are as beautiful and mysterious as the Rio Grande itself - and serve as a testament to the lost art of oral storytelling.

This ebook features illustrations by by Amy Cordova.
