Everything you need to understand or teach Rain of Gold by Victor Villaseñor.
The book tells the detailed history of three generations of two families initially caught up in the Mexican Revolution of 1910. Tracing their migrations to the United States and the difficulties they faced, it portrays an accurate picture of life in Mexico in the early 1900's and in the coastal area of California during the time of prohibition through the 1930's.
Lupe Gomez, a six-year-old girl when the story begins, grows up in the village of La Lluvia de Oro, or, Rain of Gold. It was a quiet Mexican village in the mountains of north-central Mexico, with beautiful forests, streams, natural beauty and many animals that roamed freely. Then, a vein of gold was discovered and the whole environment changed in less than twenty years. Within a generation, an American mining company purchased the mine and began to develop the valley into a large industrial operation.
