With a delightful mixture of laughter and love, fatalism and faith, the proverbs of Mexico capture the wisdom, spirit, and experience of a complex and colorful country. Over 100 authentic sayings -- or dichos -- are presented in this charming bilingual assortment. Compiled by a former writer for the Mexico City News, illustrated with dramatic artwork, and including a foreword by Gary Soto, the noted Chicano poet, this wise and wonderful collection will entertain, inform, and enchant readers both north and south of the border.
