Bless Me, Ultima  is the first in a trilogy of novels that includes  Heart of Aztlan  and  Tortuga. Bless  Me, Ultima  brings to literary life a search for personal identity in the context of the social changes  experienced by Chicano/as in New Mexico during the 1940s, and is in some ways similar to Joseph  Krumgold's . . .  and now Miguel,  which was published in the early 1950s, focusing on the life of a  New Mexican teenage sheepherder. Anaya's story covers a two-year period at the close of World  War II and centers on the experiences of a young, but serious boy who is attempting to make sense  of the world around him and, at the same time, grappling with the opposing expectations of his  parents. Anaya skillfully sets up a dialogue between Antonio and Ultima, the elderly healer who  comes to live her remaining years with Antonio's family. It is to the wrinkled Ultima that Antonio turns

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
