ABOUT Juan

ABOUT

juan andres vargas

I was born in 1940 and raised and educated in Taos, NM a small village in the north-central part of the state in the Sangre de Cristo mountains. Our family was poor, even by Taos standards.  But we always had lots of food and nightly desserts, thanks to my parents drying, canning and otherwise preserving summer’s bountiful crops.  As a child I remember running barefooted through fields and learned to whistle while running with the wind.

Historias Y Memorias and tales growing up in Taos, NM, a memoir.

I am Hispanic, born raised and educated in Taos, NM, with sojourns as the child of migrant workers in CO and later sheepherding with my Dad in WY and ID. These are my stories, my memories, the tales of witches, folklore and famous people, a tribute to my wonderful mother (who lived to be over 106!) and father who struggled against poverty and racism while raising 7 successful children.
