(From the publisher):
A young Spanish man named Rolando journeys to the New World to find the legendary Fountain of Youth. But at what price will Rolando taste the waters of eternal life?
On a dare, Lupe goes down to the river one night to search for la Llorona, a ghostly woman who walks in search of her drowned baby.
Abel, a shepherd, saves a snake from a fire and in return is given the ability to understand the speech of animals.
