By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, UT – Journalist, poet and novelist Luis Alberto Urrea's novel "The Hummingbird's Daughter," is the story of a distant relative, Teresita Urrea. Famed throughout Mexico for the power to heal with her touch, the family ranch becomes a center of pilgrimage for the people and a source of concern for the government on the eve of the revolution. Urrea joined Doug to talk about his quest to find Teresita, and the book he offers her as a gift. (Rebroadcast)
