Geronimo Tagatac-in an interrelated collection of short stories about the fictional Guerrero family-captures the essence of a people who are broken, without a home, and lost. The Guerreros are farm workers, soldiers, ski bums, students, and world travelers. They are a family unique to these stories, yet typical in their context. With simple, direct, and beautiful language, Tagatac explores both the essence of what makes a person an individual and the ties that create a family.
