About this item

Los recuerdos se miden en millas, Oriundo, porque en los sueños todos vamos manejando un Grand Marquis.La frontera norte de México es un territorio vasto, único y sorprendente. Uno de sus habitantes protagoniza esta novela, a la vez que conoce historias que corren a lo largo de un siglo.Oriundo Laredo recorrió unas mil o dos mil veces, con toda paciencia y sin barullo, de Palomas a Ojinaga y de Canutillo a Presidio. Del este al oeste y viceversa, por toda la frontera norte de México. Y más: por esa misma frontera, pero del otro lado, también acumuló incontables millas.Sin sonar la duela, como la sombra de un caballo perdido, como una nube solitaria en la entraña del extenso manto. Oriundo Laredo es un mexicoamericano. Pariente, por lo tanto, tuyo y mío, y también fruto de la Sierra Madre y de las Grandes Llanuras, donde apaches, blancos, morenos, tornados, chaparrales, bisontes y chamizos conforman un país-de-en-medio.Una tierra única cuyos secretos muy pocos conocen. Esta novela cuenta esa historia. No importa que seas del Valle de Juárez o de Oakland; de todas maneras pasas las mismas nevadas y los mismos solazos, y tragas la misma ******. Todo esto un día fue México y ahora es de todos, aunque las fronteras geopolíticas digan otra cosa.ENGLISH DESCRIPTIONMexico's northern border of is a vast, unique, and surprising land. One of its citizen stars in this novel, while at the same time hearing stories that run the length of a century. Oriundo Laredo traveled one or two thousand times, with patience and without any fuss, from Palomas to Ojinaga and from Canutillo to Presidio. Back and forth from east to west, all along the northern border of Mexico. And he also accumulated countless miles along the same border, but on the other side.Oriundo Laredo is a Mexican American, and therefore a relative of yours and mine. He is also a son of both the Sierra Madre and the Great Plains.A unique land whose secrets only a few know; this novel tells its story. It does not matter if you're from Juarez or from Oakland; either way you still weather the same snow the same heat, and the same ******. All of this was Mexico one day and now it belongs to everyone, even if the geopolitical borders say otherwise.
