Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 5 Up-This volume is formatted like a family album, combining period photos with a readable text. It is divided into six chapters, beginning with the first Mexican Americans, who "...did not choose to leave their homeland and come to the United States. Instead, the U.S. went to them." While famous individuals are included, the book is really about ordinary family members who lived, worked, and died. Descriptions and quotations from interviews conducted by the author reflect the the unique qualities of the various peoples. A chapter entitled "Back and Forth" describes the bracero program and its parallel illegal immigration, discusses the work of "coyotes," and offers personal accounts on how to cross the border evading the border partrol or la migra. A clear and informative presentation.

Format: Hardcover
I would suggest this book to anyone interested in Mexicans, Mexican-Americans or immigration. Although it is geared for a younger group, it's useful and actually fun for everyone to read. I highly reccomend it!
