Publisher's Summary

The Compromised Land is a compilation of short stories concerned with Mexican life around the turn of the century. The themes reflect the Hispanic tradition and its continuity of values and origins. This volume contains stories about buried treasure, ghosts, the devil, the astuteness of the peasant farmer, fables of extraordinary feats by the Indian, and the legalistic mind of the "borrachito" or drunkard.

The central theme of the volume is that of the immigrant who crosses the border from Mexico to the United States in search of work and a better way of life. The immigrant who, although remains forever in a world of new customs and languages, wishes to retain his sense of pride, personal, and ancestral values, passing them on to successive generations. This audiobook is of significance to all Spanish speaking people in the United States. This collection will also be found in courses dealing with Spanish American literature.
