"This novel tells the story of Eduardo Ricardo Montez of Los Torbellinos, New Mexico, from his childhood years to his enlistment in the navy during World War II. In the early years of the Depression, Eduardo's father, Miguel, leaves to find work in a sheep camp in Colorado and four-year-old Eduardo, too young to work and one too many mouths to feed, is sent by his mother, Elena, to live with his grandparents. As the weeks turn to years, Eduardo finds love and acceptance in his new home, but never ceases to long for the love and attention of the mother who sent him away." "Stone Horses is the story of a young life and a way of life in the northern mountains of New Mexico. The warmth of the summers, the sweet scent of fruit orchards, the pounding hoof beats of the villagers' treasured horses, and, most of all, the people in Eduardo's world - his beloved Grandmother Rosita, his first love, his troubled Tio Diego, his mentor Fernando - envelop us in un torbellino, a whirlwind, of discovery and unforgettable characters."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
