In the heart of South America is a mountain, as beautiful in the light of morning as cruel in the darkness of the mines that run through it in all directions. Salvador, a child of the mountain, who has become a writer, remembers . . . the departure of his father and brother, who never returned, his sister Ana’s coloured pencils, his other sister Teresa’s reveries, the shoeshine boys whose fate he should have shared, if his mother had not felt so strongly that every mango tree may produce mangos.
In remembering his past, Salvador renews his relationship with the soul, culture, and values of his people.
