Overview

Poetry. Latino/Latina Studies. In this anthology, Pat Mora has gathered the best of her poems with young-adult readers in mind, and has added to them several new poems published here for the first time. Using the cactus plant as her guiding metaphor for our existence, she presents more than sixty lyrics grouped variously into Blooms, Thorns, and Roots. Each section opens with a line drawing by artist Anthony Accardo. Pat Mora's books GIFT OF THE POINSETTIA and COMMUNION are also available from SPD.
