Born in 1908, two years before the start of the Mexican Revolution, Rafael lives in the village of San Cristobal, in northern Sonora, Mexico, where his father, the village comisario, owns a bar, pool hall, and grocery store. This is a ranching town where vaqueros are heroes, and horses and bulls, as well as coyotes and rattlesnakes, provide thrills and teach lessons that Rafael and his brothers will never forget. The boy's earliest memories are of mounted revolutionaries riding through town and commandeering horses for Pancho Villa's campesino army. When his parents lose their life savings in the revolution, the family crosses the border to Arizona. Life in the north is a struggle, and young Rafael must put aside his dreams of education and work with his brothers picking lettuce wherever labourers are needed.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Flores has written an enchanting book about his family's life in a small town in northern Mexico, the hardships of the Mexican Revolution and the family's immigration to Arizona in 1918."
"In an absorbing style, the author guides the reader first into Mexico during the Revolution, then into the U.S., describing the journey of a fictious family with care and affection. . . His tales are enchanting, evocative, and humorous."
