Brujas, Bultos, y Brasas ePub and PDF Available
I loved the language most...Anything like this should be a bilingual edition, but most beautifully in this the Spanish hasn't been cleaned up or standardised, it is instead more phonetic so it captures all the nuances and local shiftings of the language. It is as close as you can get to listening to the actual recording, a record of the ways that language embeds itself into a landscape, and fascinating how much is the usage of where I grew up in Southern AZ and how much is different.

I love ghost stories, I confess not everyone is the best storyteller — but this is the nature of oral histories capturing a swathe of tales across a wide group of people. Oral histories racing the clock to get stories down from our elders who may not be with us from one day to the next. So what was most interesting to me was where the same story emerged several times, the baby with teeth, the strange powers of a Juan or a Juanita. I loved the idea that La Llorana was someone burned at the stake whose descendents can hear her still crying...I wondered at the fact that none of the La Llorona stories are the one I grew up with. How? Why?

I did, though, wish to hear more than stories of strange lights and evil eye, I wanted to hear about their lives, their dreams, the ways things had changed. I have to look for the other books I guess, mine this invaluable resource Nasario Garcia has preserved for us. Something to be loved and cherished and protected.
