This collection of first person narratives reflects the diversity of the Filipino immigrant experience and openly addresses issues of changing identity, generational and cultural differences, and the role of community. Included are pre- and post-1965 immigrants, from working students who came before WWII, to the manongs in the field, to the stewards and officers in the U.S. Navy, to the "brain drain" professionals, to the Filipinos born and raised in the United States.
