The conflict of the Indian and the Spanish cultures is acted out within him as it was in the life of Arguedas. For the boy Ernesto, salvation is his world of dreams and memories.

This makes translation into other languages extremely difficult, and Frances Horning Barraclough has done a masterful job, winning the Translation Center Award from Columbia University.
