This is an author who does good work for the little understood minorities. Here a family in New Mexico lives and works and fiestas. Father is a weaver and a grower of splendid vegetables. He must travel to be a fruit picker in seasons to eke out his income. Small son, however involved he becomes in chores, and however quickly he is pushed toward responsibility, has a wonderful time with his very own burro which he catches and tames. A fiesta makes a lively finale. This is spirited and tender and has fine family and human values.
