<BR /> In the shadow of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, New Mexico&rsquo;s Mora Valley harbors the ghosts of history: troubadours and soldiers, Plains Indians and settlers, families fleeing and finding home. There, more than a century ago, villagers collect scraps of paper documenting the valley&rsquo;s history and their identity&mdash;military records, travelers&rsquo; diaries, newspaper articles, poetry, and more&mdash;and bind them into a leather portfolio known as &ldquo;The Book of Archives.&rdquo; When a bomb blast during the Mexican-American War scatters the book&rsquo;s contents to the wind, the memory of the accounts lives on instead in the minds of Mora residents. Poets and storytellers pass down the valley&rsquo;s traditions into the twentieth century, from one generation to the next. In this pathbreaking dual-language volume, author A. Gabriel Mel&eacute;ndez joins their ranks, continuing the retelling of Mora Valley&rsquo;s tales for our time.<BR /><BR /> A native of Mora with el don de la palabra, the divine gift of words, Mel&eacute;ndez mines historical sources and his own imagination to reconstruct the valley&rsquo;s story, first in English and then in Spanish. He strings together humorous, tragic, and quotidian vignettes about historical events and unlikely occurrences, creating a vivid portrait of Mora, both in cultural memory and present reality. Local gossip and family legend intertwine with Spanish-language ballads and the poetry of New Mexico&rsquo;s most famous dueling troubadours, Old Man Vilmas and the poet Garc&iacute;a. Drawing on New Mexican storytelling tradition, Mel&eacute;ndez weaves a colorful dual-language representation of a place whose irresistible characters and unforgettable events, and the inescapable truths they embody, still resonate today.
