Latino Americans in Sports, Film, Music and Government: Trailblazers

by Richard Mintzer

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Greg M. Romaneck
The "Hispanic Heritage" series is designed to provide readers with an overview of the contributions made by Americans who migrated to the United States in order to start a new life. In this title Richard Mintzer presents some of the more public Hispanic figures drawn from the realms of politics, sports, and the arts. Within the pages of this concise cultural study, youngsters will be introduced to figures such as Alex Rodriguez, a superstar baseball player. Cruz M. Bustamonte is presented as a leading political figure in his role as Lieutenant Governor of California. Gloria Estafon is offered as but one example of the contribution to popular music that Hispanic performers have made. In each biographical sketch the author takes time to detail not only the successes achieved by the figure in question, but also the difficulties they had to overcome. In this way this slim book affords younger readers a fine opportunity to better appreciate the success stories that do exist within the broader Hispanic community.
