More About This River Here by Carmen Tafolla
 
 
 
Overview
San Antonio poet laureate Carmen Tafolla captures her hometown—the city of her ancestors for the past three centuries—in poems that celebrate its history as a cosmopolitan multilingual cultural crossroads. Discover San Antonio's corazón in Tafolla's poetry, accompanied by historic and contemporary photographs that convey its enduring sense of place. A century ago, San Antonio gave Oscar Wilde "a thrill of strange pleasure." J. Frank Dobie claimed that "every Texan has two hometowns—his own and San Antonio," and Will Rogers declared it to be "one of the three unique cities of America." To Larry McMurtry, "San Antonio has kept an ambiance that all the rest of our cities lack." Carmen Tafolla calls forth the soul of this place—the holy home of the waters, called Yanaguana by los indios—and celebrates the many cultures that have made of it "un rebozo bordado de culturas y colores."
