Campobello’s memories of the Revolution in the north of Mexico, where Pancho Villa was a popular hero and a personal friend of her family, show not only the stark realism of Cartucho but also the tender lyricism of My Mother’s Hands.

They are noteworthy, too, as a first-person account of the female experience in the early years of the Mexican Revolution and unique in their presentation of events from a child’s perspective.

Cartucho and My Mother’s Hands by Nellie Campobello

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. I love the book but it was very dirty when i received it. They could have at least wipe it off for the customer. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. Two powerful collections of short stories about growing up during the Mexican Revolution.

A great ode to Pancho Villa a figure who had been traditionally villified by Mexican history as well as to the author’s mother. And this is a pretty nice book that describes that social impression in Mexico during the Mexican Revolution.

Actually the condition of this book is more than what I expected and the shipping was very timely!

One person found this helpful. I read this for a class and it is a very unique book. I expected a “child’s” view of how sad war is. What I got was a distorted view of her sadistic heroes. She tells of young boys playing only to be stopped by a Villista and then taken to a cemetery to be shot just because of who their fathers were.

Or of a high ranking Villista who liked whipping young men with his sword, stopping when the sword was nearly broken. These “freedom fighters” were gangsters or terrorists.

Cartucho and My Mother’s Hands

It made me really, really sad of what may be going on right now in certain parts of the world. Villa, you were no Emiliano Zapata. Honestly, the book made me sick. I hope Miss Campobello did acrtucho in her documenting her country’s folk dances than in writing a book about her country through the eyes of a child.
