Tomas Rivera's original Spanish-language novel plus a new translation into English by Evangelina Vigil-Pinon. ...y no se lo trago la tierra won the first national award for Chicano literature in 1970 and has become the standard literary text for Hispanic literature classes throughout the country. It is now an award-winning, motion picture entitled And the Earth Did Not Swallow Him.
From the Publisher:
Examines in English and Spanish the lives of migrant workers moving from south Texas up through the Plains, and the experiences of all ages and sexes
Annotation:
In the tradition of John Steinbeck, Tomas Rivera's portrait of a Mexican migrant family is a highly realistic look at a neglected underclass. Young Marcos works alongside his parents in the fields, enduring the scorching heat, the insulting pay, and the shameful living conditions; he must also cope with the prejudice he encounters in the local schools. Told as a series of short stories, this classic picture of hardship and exploitation has long been required reading for Hispanic teenagers--a sensitive coming-of-age tale that is also an exposé of something that is very wrong with America.
