Summary

Summary

As the largest minority in the country, Latino Americans make up an integral part of American history and continue to make major social, cultural, and political contributions. Latino Americans shares their story, revealing the personal struggles and successes of immigrants, poets, soldiers, and others who have made an impact on history. Author and acclaimed journalist Ray Suarez explores the lives of Latino American men and women across a five-hundred-year span, encompassing an epic range of experiences from the early European settlements to Manifest Destiny; the Wild West to the Cold War; the Great Depression to Globalization; and the Spanish-American War to the Civil Rights movement.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A rich and varied chronicle of our nation’s largest minority.” Barnes & Noble, editorial review
“An earnest, informative companion to the PBS series.” Kirkus Reviews
“This companion book for the PBS series of the same name also stands on its own as a source of valuable information about this large, and growing, group of Americans. The author also serves as narrator, and he does a terrific job. Suarez, a news broadcaster, has excellent diction, and he varies his pitch and tone to make the book flow. His voice has a hint of a Hispanic accent, but what really comes through is a large dollop of New York. That’s not a bad thing; in fact, it lends credibility to Suarez’s efforts and makes his story sound grounded and real. In the end, Suarez succeeds in his stated goal of getting listeners to think differently about this country and to appreciate the Latino contributions to our history.” AudioFile
