White Feather And Teresita

by Marlene Chavez Hawkes, White Feather And Teresita Books available in PDF, EPUB, Kindle, Docs and Mobi Format. Download White Feather And Teresita books, A Southwestern Adventure Based on Fascinating Colonial History When a figurine of Baby Jesus is stolen from the Nativity scene at a church in New Mexico, a seemingly small incident becomes a catalyst for potential disaster as local Apache Indians are accused of the theft. White Feather, a Pueblo Indian, and Teresita, a Spanish girl, step up to find the Baby Jesus, fearing another Pueblo Rebellion. Each chapter of this action-packed adventure features a different fascinating journey of discovery, as the intrepid rescuers delve deep into the mysteries of New Mexico's past and traditional legends. Their experiences range from the mystical - such as White Feather escaping from a hidden village with the help of his dead father - to the legendary, when Teresita confronts a shape-shifter. Their families become involved, too - Teresita's mother, a former dancer with a band of gypsies in Spain, makes a narrow escape from the Bear Clan, down a wild river, after jumping past the jaws of a wild bear. And White Feather's mother, New Dawn, meets a very unusual Indian woman who lives in the wild with her wolf protector and her child. But at the center of this novel is the story of the missing Christ Child...and the dangerous trail that White Feather and Teresita must take to the secret chapel where the "bloodletting penitentes" have hidden it. Will they avert a second rebellion? Will they survive their encounter with a former Aztec priest who performed human sacrifices...and who wants them to explore a cave holding many deadly secrets? Will the "star people," the ancient guardians of the Aztecs, help them in their quest? Find out as you travel along with White Feather and Teresita on their fabulous adventure!

Queen Of America

by Luis Alberto Urrea, Queen Of America Books available in PDF, EPUB, Kindle, Docs and Mobi Format. Download Queen Of America books, At turns heartbreaking, uplifting, fiercely romantic, and riotously funny, Queen of America tells the unforgettable story of a young woman coming of age and finding her place in a new world. Beginning where Luis Alberto Urrea's bestselling The Hummingbird's Daughter left off, Queen of America finds young Teresita Urrea, beloved healer and "Saint of Cabora," with her father in 1892 Arizona. But, besieged by pilgrims in desperate need of her healing powers, and pursued by assassins, she has no choice but to flee the borderlands and embark on an extraordinary journey into the heart of turn-of-the-century America. Teresita's passage will take her to New York, San Francisco, and St. Louis, where she will encounter European royalty, Cuban poets, beauty queens, anxious immigrants and grand tycoons -- and, among them, a man who will force Teresita to finally ask herself the ultimate question: is a saint allowed to fall in love?
