    Sorry But this book is Boring

    It contained too much background information. Perhaps if the author had done a better job in engaging the reader and make history less dull. I had to read this book for a history class. (I'm not sure what my professor was thinking.) Far to boring to be recommended. It bounced back from the whole Mexican-American Mining issues to the actual orphans. I was disappointed, I wish it would have focused more on the orphans. This book is by far one of the only books I have had trouble finishing because of its uninteresting writing.

    Too Looonnng!!!

    I had to read this book for a history class, otherwise I would have stopped reading about 100 pages into it. I agree with the other reviewer who said that there were interesting areas of the book, but it seemed to go on and on and on... After a while I just wanted to know what happened to the kids and close the book. The author could have made it about 100 pages shorter, easily. It was a page turner, but only because I kept looking to see how much more I had to go through.

    Orphans or Migrant Workers?

    I personally hated the book. Some aspects of it were interesting, but it was a very DRY and BORING read. The book was centered around the Orphan Abduction, but it rarely talked about it. The Abduction part took up about 20 pages (of the 407 pages) and the rest was background information on Migrant Workers from Mexico and like the other reviewer said, the treatment of orphans. Stress added on DRY(!!!) and BORING(!!!).

    What a interesting read.

    I had to read this book for a history class and I really enjoyed it. The book opened my eyes on how orphans were treated at the turn of the century. I would have chose this book even if it was not required. I could have done without the history of coal mining, but it gave me a view of how life was for the Mexicans.
