The sun has set, the moon is full: October 31, the first day of Dia de Los Muertos, when the Dead are allowed to join the Living for three days. The old cemetery in the Alamedan Valley of New Mexico is brimming with merriment as the Dead sing, dance, and greet old friends.
Gil, one of the Dead, is not celebrating. He’s searched frantically for Angelina, who in life was his love. If he can’t find her in time, she will be doomed to an unquiet grave for all eternity.
Legends of the Bosque is based on the tales told by the author's grandfather, "El Doctorcito," Dr. M.K. Wylder, who practiced medicine in the Rio Grande Valley starting in 1902. Fresh from medical school in St. Louis, MO, the young doctor entered the world of the curandero, the bruja, the shaman, and learned very quickly that things were not always as they seemed.

Legends of the Bosque: Dia de Los Muertos
Having lived most of my life in New Mexico I have heard many folk stories surrounding urban legends.....both Native American and Hispanic but I've never been so enchanted as I am with this narrated book! The legend is delightful! The original music lends itself beautifully! ENCHANTING is the word for Legends of the Bosque: Dia de Los Muertos!
Legends of the Bosque
I found it to be an interesting love story with a twist unpredictable to the end, which I found refreshing. There are all these features: audio book, sound effects, music and songs too. This author certainly gives the reader everything!
legends of the Bosque: Dia de Los Muertos
This is such an entertaining book; it transported me into a time of magical characters that held my interest. You find yourself engaged in this romantic story of Love will find a way back to the heart. I liked everything about this book and simply written but powerful and charismatically done and read too! with appealing audio effects and wonderful illustrations. It has it all even a bit of history, and so much more than books I have purchased for more than twice the price. If you like something different this is the book. The only thing I would have enjoyed more is if it was made into an animated movie that would be so cool.
