The book is an album of memories, hallmarks of the passage of a brother's young, very eventful life. "A youth remarkably different in heart and spirit." P.C. Morantte shares the phenomenon of their "Tilting" and the closely-knit, extended Filipino family. Amid the provincial, there is a talk of magic, enchantment and superstition, and the admonition. "Be very careful in talking...about...your brother." But the reader is taken into the family's confidence.
