SPECTERS that haunt the rivers and woods, hidden treasure, headless goblins, a wild phantasmagoria of gore and grizzle...all here for the first time in English to delight audiences of all ages, but particularly young adult readers. Alfred Avila's collection of deliciously gory tales is founded in oral lore and the Hispanic tradition native to the American Southwest. He has salvaged these stories from disappearing forever for future generations to enjoy in the darkness, where the devils, demons and spirits of the night become living, breathing entities to entertain, frighten and teach.
