    vega

    Hi , I'm reading "The Crossing" by Cormac McCarthy. The author used a term that I couldn't find in any english dictionary.
    He used "vega": from the meaning I guess it stands for "vegetation" , but I'm not sure. Since the novel is about mexican border could be a spanish related term.
    Is "vega" a slang term ?
    Thanks.
    Matteo.

    Chevrolet Vega - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    You sure he wasn't talking about a car?

    If it wasn't capitalised and wasn't about a car, please post the full sentence it appeared in so we can make a more informed attempt to help you.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
