San Antonio poet laureate Carmen Tafolla captures her hometown--the city of her ancestors for the past three centuries--in poems that celebrate its history as a cosmopolitan multilingual cultural crossroads. Discover San Antonio's corazon in Tafolla's poetry, accompanied by historic and contemporary photographs that convey its enduring sense of place. A century ago, San Antonio gave Oscar Wilde "e;a thrill of strange pleasure."e; J. Frank Dobie claimed that "e;every Texan has two hometowns--his own and San Antonio,"e; and Will Rogers declared it to be "e;one of the three unique cities of America."e; To Larry McMurtry, "e;San Antonio has kept an ambiance that all the rest of our cities lack."e; Carmen Tafolla calls forth the soul of this place--the holy home of the waters, called Yanaguana by los indios--and celebrates the many cultures that have made of it "e;un rebozo bordado de culturas y colores."e;
