Hijo del Rio Details


Life on the Chorote Indian Reservation in Argentina was too boring for the young Native man in this story, and he gets into trouble quickly and is tossed off the premises. The attractions of the big city of Buenos Aires draw him and his buddy Frog there, and he swiftly settles into a room in one of the slums on the city's outskirts. He has relatives and tribal connections in town, and they do their best to show him a decent way to get by, but the lure and excitement of criminal activity soon draw him in. Despite this, his relatives remain sympathetic to his aspirations, even while they are resigned to the knowledge that someday soon he will get into more trouble than he can handle. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi
