About this Item

Dust jacket has edgewear repairs, text is very clean and well bound. Written in the mid 1950s this is a dramatic and forceful account of the daily lives of the men, women and children of five Mexican families, a warm portrait of human beings, and at the same time a well-documented and authoritative presentation of a culture explosively in flux. These communities and the people who make them up emerge from Dr. Lewis's pages with the dramatic immediacy and realism of a novel. Bookseller Inventory # 55169
