This book is a quick read with 26 chapters that reflect on Chicano history, language, family values, and cultural norms. It also includes chapters on the author's own experiences growing up Chicano in the United States, having lived in Texas, California, and Washington, D.C., and having traveled to Mexico and Spain. His writing is flavored with Spanish and Spanglish expressions and slang. It's a great blend of personal and Chicano history. A great read for Americans who work with Hispanic populations, or young Chicanos who want to learn a little about their own history. ( )

Library Journal: In this collection of essays, Chicano writer Burciaga explores from Mexican American and Chicano viewpoints the complexities of being Mexican American. Many of the essays tell of the early days of the Chicano movement in Texas, which Burciaga experienced as a child. Burciaga seeks the roots of his Chicano heritage in Mexico and Texas, telling today's Mexican Americans how the Chicano movement has changed their lives for the better. His personal anecdotes of growing up a stranger to both of his native lands speak to today's immigrants, especially the second and third generations. Heartily recommended for public libraries, this is essential for any library serving a Hispanic community. - Sharon Roman, Carroll Cty. P.L., Westminster, MD.
