Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In this collection of essays, Chicano writer Burciaga explores from Mexican American and Chicano viewpoints the complexities of being Mexican American. Many of the essays tell of the early days of the Chicano movement in Texas, which Burciaga experienced as a child. Burciaga seeks the roots of his Chicano heritage in Mexico and Texas, telling today's Mexican Americans how the Chicano movement has changed their lives for the better. His personal anecdotes of growing up a stranger to both of his native lands speak to today's immigrants, especially the second and third generations. Heartily recommended for public libraries, this is essential for any library serving a Hispanic community.-- Sharon Roman, Carroll Cty. P.L., Westminster, Md.

    Drink Cultura

    This book is way better then what i imagine. I had to pick a book for my economics class and i choosed this one because it was small. But, after i started reading it and finding out more things about the author it made me soo interested. Also I love reading books about culture and family and other ethnicity history. This book made me realize everyone struggle. Also it made me realize how much i like Mexican food because everything he named i liked.

    A must read book!

    This is a great book about Chicanismo. It's easy and fun to read. The points that Burciaga makes are very realistic and the way how he expresses himself as a Latino is extremely appealing. I'll give this book five stars and will recommend everyone to read it.
