Nellie Campobello, who went on to become a noted dancer in Mexico, grew up in Parral, Chihuahua when it was one of Pancho Villa’s last strongholds. Cartuchos is her account of what it was like to be a girl watching as the eventual winners of the Mexican Revolution defeated Villa. This is not history though; it is a campobelloo view of a childhood marred by death-a whole section is devoted to executions and very few vignettes don’t feature one.
Cartucho and My Mother’s Hands by Nellie Campobello
There is play in this world; her mother risks everything Nellie Campobello, who went on to become a noted dancer in Mexico, grew up in Parral, Chihuahua when it was one of Pancho Villa’s last strongholds. There is play in this world; her mother risks everything to treat wounded cartuucho regardless of side; a beloved candyseller enlists but is killed before firing a shot; men die in battle, or are executed as a matter of routine.
There isn’t much valor, although plenty of vainglory. She witnesses the kangaroo court that sentences Felipe Angeles, the greatest of Villa’s generals some argue that if Villa had listened to him at key points, he wouldn’t have lost to death, of course. The most sadistic of them, Rodolfo Fierro, also appears for a moment but it was left to Rafael F.
Munoz to depict how he died — drowning and so hated nelile none of his comrades in arms would help him. Curiously, perhaps because this is a young girl’s version, few women appear and those who do are either camp followers or her mother.
When I lived in Mexico, there didn’t seem to be a family that didn’t know how the women were hidden when the Revolutionaries came. If I didn’t hear any stories of the women who fell into their cakpobello, well, those are not the kind of stories that families tell.
