Summary (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.

In these ten stories, Rudolfo Anaya draws on a rich Hispanic and Native American folklore tradition, capturing the rhythm of life along New Mexico's Rio Grande valley.
