    “The voluminous memoirs of Concepcion Herrera vda. de Umali (1886–1980), originally written in Spanish, is a remarkable work. Her text not only documents the late-19th century world in which she lived—the rural Southern Tagalog town of Sariaya and the neighboring Tiaong—during an era of socioeconomic and political transformation; it is also a rich document of a certain from of storytelling and remembering, specific to the period and the place of which she wrote.”—Vicente L.
