La Tierra de Las Grullas (Land of the Cranes)

La Tierra de Las Grullas (Land of the Cranes) - Aida Salazar

La Tierra de Las Grullas (Land of the Cranes)


From the prolific author of The Moon Within comes the heart-wrenchingly beautiful story in verse of a young Latinx girl who learns to hold on to hope and love even in the darkest of places: a family detention center for migrants and refugees.

Betita, de nueve a�os, sabe que es una grulla. Papi le cont� la historia desde antes que su familia emigrara a Los �ngeles buscando refugio de la guerra del narco en M�xico. Los aztecas proced�an de un lugar llamado Aztl�n, en lo que es hoy el sureste de Estados Unidos, cuyo nombre significa tierra de las grullas, y establecieron su gran ciudad en el centro del universo: Tenochtitl�n, la actual Ciudad de M�xico. Cuenta una profes�a que su gente regresar�a un d�a a vivir entre las grullas en la tierra prometida. Papi le dice a Betita que ellos son grullas que han regresado a su hogar.

Un d�a, el querido padre de Betita es arrestado por el Servicio de Control de Inmigraci�n y Aduanas y deportado a M�xico. Betita y su mam� ingr�vida se quedan solas, pero finalmente son tambi�n detenidas y deben aprender a sobrevivir en un campamento de detenci�n de familias en las afueras de Los �ngeles. Incluso en estas condiciones crueles e inhumanas, Betita encuentra amparo en su propia poes�a y en la comunidad que ella y su madre encuentran en el campamento. Las voces de sus compa�eros en busca de asilo vuelan por encima del odio que los mantiene enjaulados y que amenaza cada d�a con hacerlos caer m�s bajo de lo que jam�s imaginaron. Podr�n Betita y su familia volver a ser una sola?

Nine-year-old Betita knows she is a crane. Papi has told her the story, even before her family fled to Los Angeles to seek refuge from cartel wars in Mexico. The Aztecs came from a place called Aztlan, what is now the Southwest US, called the land of the cranes. They left Aztlan to establish their great city in the center of the universe -- Tenochtitlan, modern-day Mexico City. It was prophesized that their people would one day return to live among the cranes in their promised land. Papi tells Betita that they are cranes that have come home.

Then one day, Betita's beloved father is arrested by Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE) and deported to Mexico. Betita and her pregnant mother are left behind on their own, but soon they too are detained and must learn to survive in a family detention camp outside of Los Angeles. Even in cruel and inhumane conditions, Betita finds heart in her own poetry and in the community she and her mother find in the camp. The voices of her fellow asylum seekers fly above the hatred keeping them caged, but each day threatens to tear them down lower than they ever thought they could be. Will Betita and her family ever be whole again?
