Professor Javier Pescador’s book released in paperback edition

The University of New Mexico Press has recently published in paperback Professor Javier Pescador’s book, Crossing Borders with the Santo Niño de Atocha.  The book “journeys through the genesis, development, and various metamorphoses in the veneration of the Holy Child of Atocha, from its origins in Zacatecas in the late colonial period through its different transformations over the centuries, across lands and borders, and to the ultimate rising as a defining religious devotion for the Mexican/Chicano experience in the United States.”
