"This collection of well-written essays stands out because it is a unique treatment of a geographical area—the American Heartland—which has been begging to tell its story. The essays break new ground in documenting the growing diversity of the migrant experience in the United States."
—Norman Caulfield, author of NAFTA and Labor in North America
"An important contribution to our understanding of Latin American migration beyond the coast and borderlands. The contributors, ranging from historians to anthropologists to political scientists and sociologists, rethink and reconceptualize our traditional understanding of Latin American migration as well as the Heartland."
—Kathleen Mapes, author of Sweet Tyranny: Migrant Labor, Industrial Agriculture, and Imperial Politics
"Allegro and Wood organized a volume that provides a more humane depiction of Latin American immigrants by carefully documenting the challenges and possibilities they present in the region. . . . They also do an excellent job of positioning the Midwest as a dynamic region where complex and often contradictory politics coexist."—The Annals of Iowa
