BookReviews El Paso. These childhood recollections of life on the border and coming of age in a bicultural, biracial, bilingual environment are little less than precious. Time would take the writer far from the Rio Grande, to the south of France, the River Ganges in distant India, charity work in Calcutta, and a blessing from Mother Teresa. But Lucy would return to the Rio Grande, to El Paso, where she teaches high school English. Anyone interested in life on the Texas-Mexico border in the twentieth century will want this book. Lucy Fischer-West is a good writer. She has an interesting story to tell, and we should all be grateful for her efforts. Her book is highly recommended. Unfortunately, the Texas-Mexico border of the twenty-first century is radically different from what the author fondly describes in the twentieth century.
