Fiction. In English translation. José María Arguedas is one of the few Latin American authors who loved and described his natural surroundings, and he ranks among the greatest writers of any time and place. He saw the beauty of the Peruvian landscape, as well as the grimness of social conditions in the Andes, through the eyes of the Indians who are a part of it. Yawar Fiesta describes the social relations between Indians, mestizos, and whites in the Peruvian highland town of Puquio in the early twentieth century. Each group’s reaction to the national government’s attempt to suppress the traditional Indian-style bullfight reflects their attitude toward social change more generally. Included with the text of the novel is Arguedas’ anthropological essay “Puquio: A Culture in the Process of Change,” written eighteen years after Yawar Fiesta. The article emphasizes the social changes in the village that resulted from the road construction described in the novel. While Arguedas’ poetry was published in Quechua, he invented a language for his novels in which he used native syntax with Spanish vocabulary, making translation into other languages extremely difficult. Frances Horning Barraclough has met the challenge and produced an excellent work that remains faithful to the author’s use of language to reflect with lived experience of Peruvian Indians.

Rural Mexico is the setting for this fast-moving comic adventure story about a team of journalists who set out to investigate a rumored rebellion and film the infamous Fiesta de Santiago Apóstol in the Indian village of Huatepac. American journalist Lee White, his partner Checo Rivera, Lee's filmmaker daughter and her cameraman/boyfriend, and villagers Felipe and Elena Piñeda are objects of scorn and suspicion to Lieutenant Campos, a rapacious military bureaucrat, and Sam Cooke, the American soldier of fortune who is in the business of crushing the rebellion that's drawn Lee and Checo to the Sierra. "A wonderful yarn that succeeds in taking the reader on a journey of suspense, compassion, and desire for justice. Anyone who has had guns aimed at them by federales or soldiers will recognize the frustration of not having a gun to shoot back. Anyone who has listened to the ethnomusicological cacophony that distinguishes rural fiestas, or witnessed the matanza of a pig, or felt and smelled the intestinal agonies within 'the fatherland of diarrhea,' or fallen in love in the Mexican hinterland will feel at home in this book."-Jack Loeffler, author of Adventures with Ed: A Portrait of Abbey
