Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Their stories are those of a people with a strong sense of place, person, and time; they are capsules of the aspirations and disappointments of thousands of Mexican Americans throughout the Southwest." —Books of the Southwest"The passages chosen by Martin demonstrate not only an understanding and empathy for her subjects, but also an intuitiveness about the elements of daily life that are at once unique and universal." —Arizona Republic"The photographs by Bernal add immensely to the volume, which will be enjoyed by lovers of the Southwest and historians of Hispanics." —Pacific Historian
