If you’re a couple of decades old you might remember the Pulliam Family, longtime owners of Arizona’s 123-year-old newspaper. When the family sold the Arizona Republic to Gannett in 2000, there was talk then of the possible loss of loyalty towards readers. “Would a corporation put community service before profits?” Lifelong readers, like myself, have watched with sinking hearts.

In the same vein of “To Kill a Mocking Bird” and “Catcher in the Rye,” Rudolfo Anaya’s “Bless Me, Ultima” has evolved into one of the most widely beloved and challenged books of all time.
