The Farthest Home Is in an Empire of Fire free pdf "Wonderful...a book that connects us to the global story of ourselves." -Sandra Cisneros In this beautifully written, highly original work, John Phillip Santos- the author of "Places Left Unfinished at the Time of Creation"-creates a virtuosic meditation on ancestry and origins. Weaving together a poetic mix of family remembrance, personal odyssey, conquest history, and magical realism, Santos recounts his quest to find the missing chronicle of his mother's family, who arrived in southern Texas in the 1620s. As Santos traces their roots to northern Spain, he re-imagines the way we think about identity. The result is a uniquely engaging adventure in the frontier between self and family, past and present, at a time when breakthroughs in genetics are changing our window on history.
