ABOUT THIS BOOK
Step into the realm of oral histories, where the experiences and traditions of Latin American immigrants echo through time. In Aguas Con Caballo, meet seven soldiers from ancient civilizations whose narratives still speak to the painful reality of many modern-day immigrants in the United States.
These stories encompass themes of suffering, abuse, and failure, but also unwavering courage, perseverance, and the pursuit of dignity. Imprisoned but undeterred, these young authors — all of whom are incarcerated youth at Horizon Academy — strive to inspire others by sharing their stories, proving that the indomitable spirit of their ancestors endures. As we confront the numerous challenges faced by Latino immigrants today, Aguas Con Caballo reminds us of the value of liberatory dreaming.
