Summary:

Jesus Berruezo, a 10-year-old Mexican boy, has an obstruction in each

ear. Because Jesus can't hear, he can't imitate the sounds others

make, so he has been speechless all his life. The village priest

tells the boy's family that if they can take him to Guadalajara,

1000-miles away, the doctors can perform a minor operation on the

boy's ear, and Jesus will then be able to talk like everyone else.

The family is heartbroken, because it will take three years to save

the amount needed for his transportation. That night, Jesus takes a

little bread, a piece of cheese, his best clothes and the precious

letter the priest wrote to the doctor in Guadalajara, and sets off on

the long pilgrimage from his little village to the big city. [TA]
