KUDOS AND SALUDOS
THE CIRCUIT: Stories from the Life of a Migrant Child by Francisco Jiménez has been selected as an Oregon Battle of the Books title for 2012 and will be read by students in over 200 schools across the state!
These independent but intertwined stories follow a migrant family through their circuit, from picking cotton and strawberries to topping carrots--and back again--over a number of years. As it moves from one labor camp to the next, the little family of four grows into ten. Impermanence and poverty define their lives. But with faith, hope, and back-breaking work, the family endures.

NEW FROM UNM PRESS
AMADITO AND THE HERO CHILDREN: Amadito y los Niños Héroes by Enrique Lamadrid, illustrated by Amy Córdova
Recounting the two most deadly epidemics to strike the Southwest, this beautifully illustrated narrative reveals that with tragedy comes heroism, as demonstrated by the children who bravely transported the smallpox vaccine from Mexico's interior to New Mexico in 1805.
BEGGING FOR VULTURES: New and Selected Poems, 1994-2009
by Lawrence Welsh
The poetry of Lawrence Welsh crosses many borders, from South Central Los Angeles, where he was raised, to El Paso, where he has lived for almost twenty years.
THE WRATH OF GOD: Lope de Aguirre, Revolutionary of the Americas
by Evan L. Balkan
Deliberately provocative, Evan Balkan's The Wrath of God examines Aguirre, a symbol of Basque fury and rampage, arguing that Aguirre's historical representation as a one-dimensional madman deserves revisiting.
COWBOYS DON'T CRY by Charles Berry
As Scout McBride navigates the rugged path to becoming a man, he knows that to emulate the men he admires, he must keep one thing in mind: Cowboys don't cry.
