From the back cover: "Spring Poems Along the Rio Grande chronicles the author's daily pilgrimage through the meadows, riverbanks, and forests of the Rio Grande bosque where winter ends, spring explodes, and inextricable links between the human spirit and the natural world are revealed. Grounded in his Chicano ancestry, Baca's poems unfold his vision of love and love, poverty and renewal, and war and redemption as he surrenders himself to a place where 'what is broken is blessed.'"
