The New Face of Small-Town America
Snapshots of Latino Life in Allentown, Pennsylvania
The Pennsylvania State University Press
I was prepared to read the usual hype regarding a "minority" group in this country.
Instead, Sandoval pleasantly surprises you with the heartfelt and heartwarming stories of a variety if individuals.
These are not the "poor me", American-hating individuals that we hear so much about. Instead, these are stories filled with hope, pride, and enthusiasm for life! Individuals who just want to "be"!
I highly recommend this book, which gives us a snapshot of the Latino life in Allentown, and in many communities around this country! It introduces us to the new generation of immigrants. One we should welcome with warmth!
I give this book my...
....five star rating and...
...my thumbs up award!
