Tierra Amarilla: Stories of New Mexico/Cuentos de Nuevo Mexico

Sabine Ulibarrí

A mysterious and majestic white stallion, an angelic but unsophisticated village priest, gossips with scathing tongues, and a blacksmith with awesome strength are among the characters that populate the charming stories of Sabine Ulibarrí.

Ulibarrí, a native of Tierra Amarilla, takes the reader back into his past, inside the church and adobe homes, through the forests and fields, across mountain meadows and canyons, revealing an enduring love of the Spanish American people who come alive in this book.

First published in Spanish in 1964, this classic re-release is a bilingual presentation that offers delightful reading for anyone interested in the hues of Hispanic life in northern New Mexico.

Part of the Pasó por Aquí Series on the Nuevomexicano Literary Heritage


Sabine R. Ulibarrí (1919-2003) was professor of Spanish and Portuguese at the University of New Mexico.
