  1. After the dust storm, Mama is the only one of the workers in the cabin to become ill. Why is this so? How does her illness affect Esperanza? Why does Esperanza agree to cut the eyes out of the potatoes?

The doctor explains that sometimes people who are new to the area (like Mama) aren't used to the air. Thus, when dust spores get into their lungs it causes an infection.

Please ask your questions separately.
