Publisher's Summary

Pascuala Herrera, a Mexican immigrant woman with a physical disability resulting from childhood polio, had the odds against her, yet she conquered simply by working hard, having unfailing faith, and finding her own life purpose.

Although her mother always told her that “life was a valley of tears”, Pascuala learned that although there were many difficult moments in her life, there were also beautiful miracles that happened every day. Pascuala Herrera tells her life’s narrative with honest, painful stories, simple yet joyous triumphs, and humor that will lead all listeners to embrace their own struggles and realize that life is not always a valley of tears.

From being a child crawling in the streets of her pueblo in Mexico to becoming a successful educator in the United States, she proved that everything is possible. This autobiography covers many facets of the human experience—race, health, disability, religion, poverty, immigration, access to medical care, education, disability rights, miscarriage, adoption, and much more.
