I read this book back in the 1970s and really enjoyed it. I found this copy at a used book store and I need to reread it before I release it.

9 out of 10

Finished rereading this superb coming-of-age novel set during WWII in a small New Mexico mountain town. I originally read this back in the 70s and I remember there was also a movie version that starred Richard Thomas (John Boy of the Waltons) that was also very good. Anyway this tells the story of Josh Arnold who goes to live in Sagrado, NM, with his mother while his father serves in the navy during the war. This is full of great characters that populate the small town including Anglos (anyone not Native or Indian), Natives (Spanish American), and Indians. Josh makes some great friends and also some malevolent enemies including Chango who says among other things "Jew are a pendejo bahstair..." The book is full of humor and great scenes of life in the remote hills of New Mexico during WWII. High recommendation.

I so enjoyed the characters in this book! They were so full of personality. I especially liked Josh's wry sense of humor and his perceptive look at the people around him.

Thanks for sharing!
