Overview

In Growing up in Mexico, Peggy Brown Balderrama tells the story of her family's life in Mexico. She describes trips through various cities and towns in the country with interesting details, and as a bonus, she gives humorous descriptions of several trips through Europe and South America that she took with her family.

The author arrived in Mexico with her parents from England when she was seven years old, and relates, with wit, the impressions she formed of Mexico and its people when she was that age. Growing up in a very peaceful Mexico City in the forties, contrasts with the Mexico City of today. Her life in the American High School, her various boyfriends, and her eventual marriage to a Mexican physician, tell a different tale from a girl who might have grown up in England or the United States or even in the Mexico City of today.
