New Mexico's politics of water, population growth, and the unique combination of Hispanic, Indian, and Anglo cultures makes Albuquerque unique, and Rudolfo Anaya's detailed descriptive prose made me feel like I was actually there with the main character as he drove on Central Avenue passing by the University of NM buildings.
Over the centuries intermarriage among the three cultures has affected the history of the state. Anaya's main characters each reflect his or her cultural background. The love stories are poignant and compelling reading. The political aspects of the novel realistically reflect some actual history in which water rights played (and continue to play) a major role.
It’s a good read, and one learns quite a bit about New Mexico’s complex history.
Thank you Rodolfo, May you Rest In Peace.
