About this title

Synopsis:

This is the Hispanic Roots, an all-American story of poverty, immigration, struggle and success. It focuses on three generations of Villaseñor's kin, their spiritual and cultural roots in Mexico, their immigration to California and their overcoming the poverty, prejudice and economic exploitation. It is the warm-hearted, humorous and tragic, true story of the wily, wary, persevering forebears of Villaseñor.

From the Back Cover:

"A grand and vivid history... the characters are keenly drawn... often I felt like a family member watching from a corner stool." -- The New York Times Book Review
