"This elegy captures the love of farm workers and the Latino community, all who yearn for justice, for this irreplaceable hero. César's life is the lucero, the light that provides vision to the path, with the glow of energy generated by the struggle. This elegy invites all to march in César's path, to attain the hope and promise of his legacy—a legacy made simple by César so everyone can participate in the quest for justice. César's lucero spotlighted the attainable victory, the solution to end the suffering of farm workers, a union, "the farm workers' house of justice" where those that feed the world can end their suffering and have a final voice over their lives and destinies." —Dolores Huerta, co-founder of the United Farm WorkersRudolfo Anaya (his classic novel Bless Me, Ultima has 1,000,000-plus in print) has earned international acclaim for his skillful mingling of realism, fantasy and myth while exploring the experiences of Hispanics in the American Southwest.

I love this book more for inspirational artwork than the poetry. I use it to teach elementary students. Compare with Harvesting Hope.

I ordered two of these by mistake, but was glad I did, as I gave one as a Christmas gift. A moving
elegy for a great American leader who should be remembered for generations to come.

Cesar Chavez was a champion of the people and Rodolfo Anaya tries to convey that with his use of language. Publishers Weekly claims Anaya is "bogged down in flowery metaphors." I would disagree. Rather I see this tribute and the choice of words to describe Chavez and his times as an eloquent use of language. The target audience is young children who have no concept of Chavez and his struggles; if anything the pictures painted with words or concepts might be too difficult to grasp for a young mind. Enter the teacher or parent to supplement the information and simplify. Each page has a theme with Anaya's poetry capturing and puntuating the point. Of particualr interest are the illustrations which are excellent and quite powerful. Each illustration corresponds with the poetry and theme of the page. The book is one that calls for young people to remember the struggles of the civil rights era for Chicanos and to continue the fight for equality and justice. The lessons of Chavez's life are given and a plea for people not to fight each other but rather for each other. At the end of the book there is chronolgy of the life of Cesar Chavez that can be useful for the teacher. Ths book would be a nice addition to the classroom or school library for children of the middle school ages. Recommended for children who are learning English in the primary grades.
