Through the world of Antonio, Anaya skillfully describes the culture of the characters in the novel,  their diversity in lifestyles, and the mores and norms that govern their lives. The religious emphasis  captures the Catholic influence in their lives, as well as that of indigenous mysticism. Symbolically, Gabriel M á rez and the  vaquero  lifestyle represent the adventurous spirit of the  Spaniards. Their wandering ways are marked by the free spirit that loves the wide expanse of land  (or oceans). Mar í a Luna and her family represent the mystical rapport with the earth that is attributed  to the Chicano/a indigenous  indio  heritage. At the same time, however, the culture is represented as  an amalgam of European and Mexican influences, and their conflicts and contradictions are  embodied in the lives of the characters. Gabriel, for instance, represents the lifestyle of the Spaniard

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
