Here's to You" is a song by Ennio Morricone and Joan Baez, released in 1971 as part of the soundtrack of the film Sacco & Vanzetti, directed by Giuliano Montaldo. The lyrics are by Baez herself and the music is by Ennio Morricone. The lyrics are only 4 lines of text, sung over and over. The song is a tribute to two anarchists of Italian origin, Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti who were sentenced to death by a United States court in the 1920s.

by Elena Poniatowska & translated by Deanna Heikkinen. Perhaps something is lost in the translation, or maybe time has softened the urgency of Jesúsa’s plight. Certainly her experiences could be the raw material for a great historical novel: her mother dead, five-year-old Jesúsa is left with a shiftless, philandering father whose one act of kindness is making her a doll from a dead squirrel.

The first English edition of the masterful, moving story of one woman's life-by the acclaimed Mexican writerElena Poniatowska's best and most accessible work, Here's to You, Jesúsa! is a rich, sensitive retelling of the life of Jesúsa Palancares de Aguilar. Born in Oaxaca in the early 1900s, she loses her mother at a young age and lives with her father until one of his girlfriends beats and stabs her. Moved to her godmother's house, Jesúsa serves as a maid until she reunites with her father during the Mexican Revolution and joins the army of General Jesús Carranza. In the army, Jesúsa is forced to marry another soldier who beats and abandons her. On one such occasion she is beaten so severely that it draws the attention of the general himself, who punishes her husband. After the revolution, Jesúsa finds work in Mexico City, first as a domestic, then in a series of factories, and begins her long history of run-ins with the police.Poniatowska documents a colorful life while also providing a compelling, firsthand account of the most important events in Mexico during the twentieth century. Reprinted twenty-eight times since its original publication in 1969, Here's to You, Jesúsa! now stands as a classic of Mexican literature.

I started out really liking this book and the writing style of the author, but by the end I really didn't like the main character Jesusa. She seams to be a walking contradiction. She says one thing and then in the next chapter completely says the opposite. I also didn't get why, if she was trained in so many trades, she chose to be a maid. She seemed to be incredibly judgmental of other people yet was hardly a good person herself. Her whole attitude of never needing anybody or asking anybody for anything was ridiculous when you read about all the people that helped her along the way. I do think the book is worth reading, it's just hard to stomach all the self bravado and thinly disguised self pity.

Elena Poniatowska is a gifted writer, and this is probably my favorite of her works. Engaging, lyrical and often humorous, this is a portrait of a spirited Mexican woman who lived an experience-rich life.

Jesusa is a soldadera, a woman soldier, in the Mexican Revolution of 1910-1917. She describes her experiences in life
from childhood to old age-- the choices she made and the problems she had-- the effects of chance and fate.
She is the wild woman who drinks in bars, the suffering laborer and servant. She is a spiritualist right under the nose of the Virgin. She occupies a Mexico few tourists have ever seen, a terrain of wonder and terror and the shocks and blows of the unexpected events that make up her life.

Here's to You Jesusa is an excellent book with a story of bravery, history, despair, adventure, survival - everything except love and that is what made it such a sad story. The
author did an excellent job of creating a real person with very human faults and weaknesses, but also incredible strengh. It
was a story and a character that I kept thinking of long after I had finished reading the book. I highly recommend it.
Hystana
An "inside" story of life for the Mexican, lower middle class in a period of political turmoil. Very good story.
Qane
Rated this book with five stars, great book. Depicts very well, the life of a poor woman in Mexico during the time of the Mexican revolution. Tragic story, very inspiring. Grasped my attention and kept it throughout the book.
She is a great author and incredible woman!
