Brave Journeys/Pasos valientes

edited by Erika Duncan and Silvia P. Heredia

A breathtaking collection of 15 stories by young people, ages 14-17, who risked their lives crossing borders. The majority crossed mountains and deserts and rivers alone. A few came with relatives by plane. A testimony to the resilience of the human spirit, which no reader will ever forget.

Una colección impresionante de 15 historias escritas por jóvenes, entre 14 y 17 años de edad, que arriesgaron sus vidas cruzando fronteras. La mayoría cruzó montañas y desiertos y ríos solos. Algunos vinieron por avión con un familiar. Un testimonio de la resiliencia del espíritu humano, que ningún lector jamás olvidara.

edited by Sandra Dunn and Silvia P. Heredia with a guest section edited by Antoinette Hertel:

This 330-page bilingual collection takes the reader through sections on Immigrant Realities, Childhood, Motherhood, Faces of Illness and Faces of Love, through the voices of 23 women writing with Herstory all over Long Island and 11 women from Sutiaba, Nicaragua. Rarely do students in ESL, foreign language, sociology, writing and women’s studies classes have the chance to experience literature created by people “just like them.” A vital reader for community welcoming groups, book clubs, and classroom use.
