Nasario Garcia Editor- FE Y TRAGEDIAS FAITH AND TRAGEDIES IN HISPANIC VILLAGES OF NEW MEXICO

FE Y TRAGEDIAS FAITH AND TRAGEDIES IN HISPANIC VILLAGES OF NEW MEXICO

edited by Nasario Garcia

Stories like these of tragedy and sadness shard by old timers (viejitos) are as diverse as the voices behind them. Each bilingual account personifies faith, fortitude, compassion, and buoyancy. Without these human attribues, people beset with tragedy would succumbed to tragedy itself.

The point in this book is not to promote or engage in doom and gloom. Rather, it is to show how humble but strong and devout folks, living in isolation … in most cases far removed geographically from an urban environment … coped with tragedy and despair. The net and pschological effect of murder, drowning, the Ranger’s indiscriminate and callous slaughtering of poor people’s cattle, bewitchment, or the quirks of nature on the human psyche was profound but not daunting. “These are real people talking about real lives.”

If the victims of misfortune became heroes in their community, then the aggrieved surely could be categorized as tragic heroes. A more praiseworthy tribute could not be accorded these courageours and remarkable men and women who believed in redemption.
