"While Laura Amy Schlitz introduced younger readers to voices from a medieval village in her recent Newbery Medal winner, Carlson, editor of the bilingual poetry anthology Cool Salsa (rev. 11/94), returns here with a superb collection of contemporary voices from the Latino community. All the contributors are Latino, and a few, such as Gary Soto and Sandra Cisneros, should already be familiar to young adults. While there is quite a range of style and content in these vignettes, they all evince pride in a cultural heritage that celebrates faith and tradition, food and language, and the importance of family."
