Herrera's writings brings you to another time and place centered deep in her imagination and roots. When I read her poems I felt as though I had taken a cultural trip across a great divide where I located another part of myself. Her writings are sweet and fragrant, and easy to get engrossed in. Not only is she a great writer with great compassion and an inner eye, Herrera is also a wonderful person, a true sister in every sense of the word.

These are rich poems that cut across centuries of Mexican-American history, from a woman's perspective. I enjoyed the directly-stated language, as if the poet was in the room with me telling me about herself, her family, her history, her culture & the clash of cultures. Herrera's images are grounded in the real world of bread, & blood, wild flowers, & lace skirts, green beans & avocados. It's the kind of book I leave near my desk to remind me how connected poetry must be to the real lives of women (& men). If you love contemporary poetry, this is a treat; if you are afraid of contemporary poetry, this is your big sister, your Chicana aunt talking to you. Listen.

Carry this book with you always! ! It is a guide to living in the physical moment as well as plunging into the depths of time past. From "Meditation", about a lava flow at McKinzie Pass Oregon, to "Ahuacatl", a contemplative consumption of an Avocado, Herrera moves the reader to feel/see/experience the sensory moment while at the same time being the object and its history. New colors, visions and images awaken the other part of the reader's self, that part inhabiting past time. This is a Brilliant work!
