Item Description...
The Northern New Mexico tradition of saint carving began in the 1700s as an expression of worship among Catholics in isolated villages. In Aunt Carmen's Book of Practical Saints, Pat Mora extends the tradition to poetry. Through Mora's poems, some written in traditional Spanish forms, we hear the private speech of Aunt Carmen's devotion. From a prayer for a suitable husband to a prayer that the Good Shepherdess guide her to unexpected beauty, Aunt Carmen's poems, each paired with a reproduction of a traditional saint carving, inspire and illuminate.
[Aunt Carmen] has earned Mora a heavenly place in the pantheon of major poets.--Rafael Castillo, San Antonio Express-News
Pat Mora, award-winning poet and children's book author, is also author of House of Houses, a family memoir, Agua Santa: Holy Water, and Chants.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Beautiful, Funny and Poignant Prayers  Dec 24, 2001
A couple of years ago, I had the remarkable luck to have one of my poems edited by Pat Mora for the children's poetry anthology, Love to Mama (Lee & Low Books, 2001). The grace, care and loving attention she gave to my simple lines -- communicated through several e-mails -- confirmed in my heart what my mind already knew: Ms. Mora is one of our literary treasures. "Aunt Carmen's Book of Practical Saints" puts her joy of language on perfect display. In poems that resonate regardless of your religious beliefs, she shows how one can communicate joy, sorrow and hopes through prayer to various "santos/as" who are shown here in beautiful photographs of statues and paintings. This is a handsomely-produced volume of heart-felt, finely-crafted poetry from one of our finest poets. I also enjoyed Ms. Mora's "code switching" -- i.e., mixing Spanish with English -- which gives the poems a wonderful flavor. It is a joy to read.
