Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Donato superbly documents the treatment of Mexican and Hispano communities in Colorado in the twentieth century in distressingly immoral interlace. It is analogous to the Black experience in America. All Coloradoans must read this piercing historical account. Anyone who isn't clear about how a transformative education makes a difference needs to critically engage this book. It is truly a must read for all educators.— Hermán S. García, New Mexico State University
