Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 097531680X, Hardcover)American By Choice is a modern day odyssey, the story of a young boy from Ecuador who comes to America and encounters the challenges faced by every newly arriving immigrant; the story of a man who rises to the rank of Captain in New York's renowned FDNY. The book is a tribute to family, friends, mentors, guides, and to brother firefighters here and throughout the international community. It takes us to the island of Culebra in the aftermath of Hurricane Hugo, to Oklahoma City, and to the World Trade Center on the morning of September 11th, 2001, where Captain Alfredo Fuentes was buried under the rubble of the collapsed North Tower. In the end, it is a story about coming home that embraces the thousands of strangers he has met along the way. It is a story of America.
