A rave review for Mexican Migrants
on April 16, 2008
I was able to order some advanced copies of Mexican Migrants and assign the book this semester in my college course on immigration (spring 2008). The students loved the book, as did I. The stories of the Mexican immigrants Judith Hellman interviewed are poignant and full of surprises. People who think they know a lot about the subject may discover, as I did, that they still have a great deal to learn about why people come and the experiences they have, both at home and in "Gringoland." The immigrants Hellman describes may have found themselves between a rock and a hard place, but they face their many challenges with courage, ingenuity, humor and optimism. This is an informative and uplifting book, well written and a plesure to read.
