Horacio Quiroga was a master story teller that inspired Gabriel García Márquez and Julio Cortázar. I like to introduce this author to my students by doing a Webquest and then reading "El Hijo". El Hijo is one of the suggested readings for the Spanish Literature AP test. I also have my Spanish Language and Culture AP students read it because it also connects to one of the themes from the textbook Temas (el cuidado de la salud y medicina).
