Item description

Here for your delectation is the SPECTACULAR RARE-----LEONA: A LOVE STORY by Elizabeth Borton de Trevino I am heart and soul with the brave men fighting for Mexico,'' says the eponymous heroine of this historical novel based on the life of Leona Vicario (1789-1842), and for freedom from Spain.'' Turning away from her wealthy Royalist family, spurred on by a legendary love for the insurgent leader Andres Quintana Roo and for her country, Leona endures tremendous hardships while bravely helping the revolutionaries, winning from the new government the title Heroine of the Independence.'' Newbery Medalist Borton de Trevino convincingly fleshes out a complex and lovable character, imbuing the girl both with sweetly naive romanticism and the strength to live by her difficult political ideals---Leona is reminiscent of a Juliet, but has a soldier's mettle. Each reading mines a new experience of the period, as the author elegantly filters history through a variety of political, social and religious viewpoints. Borton de Trevino draws out the dramatic and moving from bare fact, and enthralls the reader by faithfully recreating the very real emotions of the time. You are bidding on the stated FSG First Edition from 1994. Other than a clipped back cardholder flyleaf (ex libris), both the mylar-covered DJ and the book are in positively minty-mint condition. There are no rips, tears, etc.--and the pages and binding are tight as a drum (they still crackle) (see photo). Check my feedback to see that I sell exactly as I describe. . Paypal is an acceptable alternative. I will ship internationally for additional charges. OPENING BID IS W-A-Y BELOW COVER PRICE!!! So bid soon and often for this magnificent, impossible-to-find CHILDREN'S HISTORICAL NOVEL COLLECTIBLE. WANT TO SEE MORE? COME VISIT MY STORE!! CLICK HERE---
