Jorge Campos Aguiñiga, a UCLA and Yale graduate, has completed his new book “Villages of Mourning”: a fascinating story of survival amidst the chaos that shrouds not only his beloved village but all of Mexico. The family faces violence, destruction and terror that forces them to flee their village in order to survive.

The author describes the story as, “A journey of a child born into a world of turmoil and violence who must assume adult responsibilities, deprived of his youth and innocence in the midst of a political battle for control of the village that is his home—hiding in cellars and moving from place to place, eventually forcing the family to abandon the village in order to survive. He is taken to towns and cities where he receives his first formal education, struggles with illiteracy, learns the turbulent history of his country and that the political forces that almost destroy the village are also ravishing the entire nation. Seeking peace, solace, and opportunities for a better future, the family emigrates to the United States.”

Published by Page Publishing, Jorge Campos Aguiñiga’s spellbinding tale is both an informative and heartbreaking account of the suffering many villages in Mexico have been forced to endure for generations.
