Read full description of the books Aunt Carmen's Book of Practical Saints:The northern New Mexico tradition of saint carving began in the 1700s as an expression of worship among faithful Catholics in isolated villages. In a new book lavishly illustrated with images of the saints, Chicana writer Pat Mora extends the tradition to poetry.Modeled on the author's elderly aunt, Aunt Carmen is impatient with cerebral notions of faith. Mora's poetry, written in traditional Spanish forms, brings us the private speech of Aunt Carmen's devotion. Carmen intimately knows her saints, their stories, their sorrows, their joys, their voices. From a prayer for a suitable husband to a prayer that the Good Shepherdess guide her to unexpected beauty, Aunt Carmen's poems offer inspiration and charm.
