I don't have a spiritual bone in my body, which is why I identified with this tale of Catholicism/Native American mysticism not at all. This is absolutely not the first time I have struggled with Chicano or Native American literature for the very same reasons, yet I keep trying. Furthermore, I've tended to find that, for me, most novels that make the American southwest scenery a central element in their stories tend to bore me. I am unable find the beauty or complexity in such a place.

Anaya is undoubtedly insightful on subjects that I simply can't/don't/won't comprehend, but even that isn't enough to make me appreciate his work beyond the respect I have for it because of its critical popularity.
