Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

To the north of chaquiras y pesos
by Hernandez Rios, Casandra, M.F.A., California State University, Long Beach, 2015, 123; 1586859
Abstract (Summary)

To the North of Chaquiras y Pesos is a collection of seven short stories that explore the meaning of culture, religion, migration, and family. México is present in each of these stories, either as the setting or in the language spoken. Whether the stories take place in the United States of America or in México, the characters' sense of home is determined by family and place.
