    Here you will find more delightful, well- told, regional tales of Northern New Mexico from author Carmen Baca. The stories sometimes spine-tingling, mostly endearing and humorous, captivate the reader as though listening to the tales around the family hearth. I am so glad that Ms Baca has put her pen to these formerly oral gems. She has done a great service for those of us who treasure this culture and love recalling simpler times

    Thank you, Carmen Baca, for this lovely book. It is very well written. The pride and workmanship of your books tell great stories of our culture from Northern New Mexico. It was a great ride down memory lane for me. I enjoyed the realism and the special touch you put in each story to bring the characters to life! Looking forward to more of your books. Muchas gracias!

    Carmen Baca’s third book is a perfect follow-up to her premier novel, El Hermano. Expertly written, it expands on some of the characters in the first book and gives even deeper insight into a culture almost gone in New Mexico. Each story stands on its own merits but many knit together to create a larger view. I was especially taken with the additional depth given to Claudia (La Lunatíca). Book four can’t come soon enough.

    Just finished reading Cuentos del Cañón last night. It is my favorite so far in the series by Carmen Baca. Growing up, I heard about some of the cuentos told in my town, including La Llorona, but never really knew the stories until I was much older. Reading Cuentos filled a void I had regarding the cuentos and my curiosity was quenched. La Sombra reminded me of Brigadoon, which is a favorite tale, and I was amused by Bueno Pues, Adios... I is a fitting story for the end of the book, and is so true of our heritage. Thank you, Ms. Baca for your decision to write these tales down for us to enjoy!
