Veracruz


Veracruz is a city on the Gulf of Mexico coast, in the state Veracruz in Mexico. The city, which is sometimes known as "Puerto de Veracruz" to distinguish from the state, was originally founded as a sea port by Hernán Cortés in 1519 during the early stages of his conquest of Mexico for Spain. The settelement was originally known as La Villa Rica de la Vera Cruz (meaning "The rich town of the true cross"), and even today, this name is still sometimes used.

As of the 2005 census, Veracruz had a population of 444,438 people living in the city itself, and 512,310 living in the municipality.

  • Used Book in Good Condition
Product Description:
As author Barry Gifford was writing these pieces, he gradually came to realize that what he was creating was a geographical fiction, or a geography of fictions. As Barry explains, “Everybody has a story, no matter where they are in the world, and I conceived the device of The Ropedancer when I was in Veracruz, Mexico, at a hotel much like the Hotel Los Regalos de Dios, where the former funambulist, whom I call The Ropedancer, took up residence following the demise of the Dancing Ciegas, who plunged to their deaths from a high wire.”

Many of these stories are tragic, some humorous, but all told by individuals in the confessional mode which is often the posture assumed by persons adrift in a foreign land and who find themselves not uncomfortably in conversation late at night with a stranger.

Product Description:
It's fun. Most bilingual readers, although they are very good, aren't much fun to read. In my Veracruz Spanish Memories Series I've set out to change all that. The tales are short; the topics either warm your heart or bring a smile to your lips. The Spanish is full and expressive. This isn't a book for beginners. It's great language development for intermediate and advanced students. In our blog for our Spanish immersion school in Veracruz, Mexico, my husband wrote about little, human, usually happy, often touching things we'd see as we were out and about the city. These short writings (many with pictures) are the basis of my book. They were written in a delightful, respectful style. The Spanish translations of these tales comes first. Each is written in Spanish that is equal in style to that of the English. You'll read Spanish the way a well-spoken native Spanish speaker would have written them. You'll get to experience the difference between a "schoolish, textbookish" translation, which these are not, and a full and true to the intent and feeling handling that is encountered in the translation of literary novels. To strengthen understanding and the educational value of the Spanish, there are lots of explanatory end notes. You'll have lots of "Oh that's how they say that" moments. Seeing how things are really said in Spanish will go a long way toward taking you from speaking student Spanish to truly speaking Spanish.
