Summary (From the publisher):

Born in Tijuana, the son of an Anglo woman and a Mexican father, Luis Urrea says, "Home isnít just a place, it is also a language." In these six stories, each wandering beneath different kinds of sky, from the thick Mazatlan starry night to the wide open spaces of the Sioux Nation in South Dakota, Urrea maps the spiritual geography of what he calls "home." These stories are puro Urrea—sad, funny, tragic, Mexican, Indian, gringo, passionate and fun.
