1 Elizabeth Borton de Trevino My Heart Lies South: The Story of my Mexican Marriage
ip 1883937515 / 9781883937515 
What happens when a thoroughly twentieth-century American lady journalist becomes a Mexican señora in nineteen-thirties' provincial Monterrey? She finds herself—sometimes hilariously—coping with servants, daily food allowances, bargaining, and dramatic Latin emotions. It is like stepping back a hundred years. In this vivid autobiography, Newbery Award winning author Elizabeth Borton de Treviño brings to life her experiences with the culture and the faith of a civilization so close to the United States, but rarely appreciated or understood. This special young people's edition presents the humor and the insights of a remarkable woman and her contact with an era which is now past, but not to be forgotten. "The book is . . . charming; it flows along as a whole, yet any chapter is a complete incident in itself." —Christian Science Monitor "A thoroughly delightful memoir . . . written with grace and humor and admirable tact." —New York Herald Tribune Length: 256 pages Edition: Paperback
