BC: Finally, there is the rest of the world,which took away my brothers. World war 2 caused hard times for everyone, and it taught my brothers to wander. I really miss them. So do mom and dad.
FC: Bless Me Ultima family photo album
1: Guadalupe, New Mexico in the 1940s. This is where our family lives.
2: Guadalupe is a catholic town, so alot of the towns big events revolve around the church, like easter.
3: On my mother's side we are Lunas. The Lunas are inherently | farmers. At El Puerto, My uncles reside. They lived in their small villege and worked together to tend to the large farm lands around them. They are a very quiet people.
4: Here is our humble little home. | We live on the outskirts of town, by the river. | My father and brothers built our house here so that my father could be close to the Ilano.
5: This is the Ilano. It is the land of my father. He is a Marez, the descendants of the conquistadors. The Marez's used to roam the Ilano freely, like the wind. Now, however, fences, railroads, and other boundries have bared them in. My father said the land is not happy with us
