I have recently done my senior project and during my research I delved into the history of canine domestication and this book is a good read if you're interested in that topic.

But back in the day, I ran away to Oaxaca, Mexico where the people and place inspired many of the stories in The Circles I Move In. My love and respect for Latin America still guide me--most recently as Hector Aristizábal's co-author. The Blessing Next to the Wound is his ...more
