Throughout the book, Antonio’s father hopes to fulfill his dream of moving to California with his sons. Because he had to give up his vaquero lifestyle to move to Guadalupe, Gabriel views this dream as his last remaining hope for contentment in life. Ever since his sons were children, Antonio’s father has expected them to follow his dream as well.


Gabriel was disappointed with the move to Guadalupe. He wanted to live on the llano, closer to his brothers and the vaqueros, but María wanted to live by the river so that she could have a small garden that reminded her of the farms. While the family lives on the edge of the llano, closer to town and the river, Gabriel isn’t satisfied with this. This is why he dreams of moving to California with his sons to regain some of the vaquero lifestyle that he had to give up.
