Publisher's description: Transcendental Train Yard is a collection of color serigraphs by American artist Marta Sanchez accompanied by bilingual poems, in Spanish and English, by poet Norma Elia Cantu that were inspired by the artwork. The book provides the reader a glimpse of the role the railroad and the carpas (itinerant vaudeville troupes) played in the Mexican American community. Sanchez and Elia Canta collaboratively render images and words that poignantly reflect specific periods in that history. The scholarly essays by Constance Cortez and Peter Haney and the evocative preface by noted Chicano scholar Tomas Ybarra-Frausto bring an added depth.
