â€œGaucho Legacies: El Sosneado, My Home of Yesteryear (Antonio Entre RÃos)â€
Lissi Entre RÃos and Joy Logan
In his coming-of-age memoir, El Sosneado, mi pueblo de antaÃ±o (2013), well-known music and folklore educator from Mendoza, Argentina, Antonio Entre RÃos, chronicles the life of the puesteros, the small ranchers who made their living by moving their herds, as well as their homes, to high Andean pastures in the summer and returning to lower elevations in the winter. Entre RÃos (1928-2013) recalls his childhood in the 1930s and describes his initiation, as a young boy, into the world of ranching, seasonal travel, and climatic disasters. For Entre RÃos, the puesteros are the last heirs of the gaucho traditions, and for them, home and identity are based on their relationship with nature and the land.
Lissi Entre RÃos, the authorâ€™s daughter, is the former dean and professor of dance at IFC Artes, Mendoza, Argentina, and currently at UHM to participate in the seven-week program, â€œArgentina in Hawaiâ€™iâ€. Joy Logan, UHM Professor, Spanish & LAIS, has focused her research on the Andean region of Mendoza. She is the author of Aconcagua, the Invention of Mountaineering on Americaâ€™s Highest Peak.
