Overview

Esperanza is a courageous and imaginative Mexican American girl living in the frontier town of Tucson, Arizona in 1876. She tries to be a responsible young lady, but she and her dog, Chica, always seem to find trouble. Esperanza's dearest wish is to discover what happened to her brother, Carlos, who years earlier was captured by Apache Indians. Then, miraculously, U.S. soldiers locate Carlos and bring him back to the ranch. But instead of the happy homecoming Esperanza envisioned, her brother is angry that he has been taken away from his Apache family and wants to return to them. Can Esperanza find a way to understand her brother? Or will she and Carlos be estranged forever? Filled with humor and adventure, this true-to-life story celebrates the cultures and lives of the people who shaped the American Southwest.
