This is the second volume of poems by Naomi Quiñónez to be published by West End Press. The first, Sueño de Colibri/Hummingbird Dream, appeared in 1985. In this book the Los Angeles-born Chicana poet extends her geographical range, having lived in the last decade in Claremont, California; Charleston, West Virginia; and Paradise, California. Her poems, whether political, romantic, whimsical, or traditional, speak from the heart and embrace both the struggles and the people she has known since childhood.
"As a warrior of language, she aims to rupture silence and fill it with a new vitality."--Francisco Lomelí
