Summary A grand mystical tree festooned in brilliant red flowers becomes he life force of a village. When the tentacles of civil unrest tear the hamlet apart the tree swallows the dead and fallen friends and enemies are born again to live in peace within the majestic and benevolent tree.
As in the title story, the passion and politics of the civil war in E1 Salvador, the blight of political strife and social injustice color this richly textured short story collection. With poetic vision the author chronicles a chapter of hemispheric history that gripped El Salvador and polarized not only the United States but also every other country in Central and South America. The turmoil, intrigue and suffering have been captured and universalized in these beautifully wrought tales told from the perspective of the common man caught up in a confusing maelstrom.
