1 Arana, Marie American Chica Two Worlds, One Childhood
0385319630 / 9780385319638; This book was a National Book Award Finalist. In her father's Peruvian family, Arana was taught to be a proper lady, yet in her mother's American family she learned to shoot a gun, break a horse, and snap a chicken's neck for dinner. She shuttled easily between these deeply separate cultures for years. It was wen she immigrated with her family to the United States that she came to understand that she was a hybrid American whose cultural identity was split in half. Coming to terms with this split is at the heart of this graceful, beautifully realized portrait of a child who was "a north-south collision, a New World fusion. An American chica." This is an engaging family history with candid portraits of her parents. The spine is slightly cocked and the bottom front corner has light wear. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 309 pages
