Told from the perspective of a young Mexican boy, author Francisco Jimenez presents twelve short stories that illustrate what it was like growing up in a family of migrant farm workers.
Francisco Jimenez writes of his childhood growing up in an immigrant Mexican family. His narrative is simple, as from a child's point of view, but that same simplicity packs the power of a highly skilled storyteller. Beautifully and authentically rendered by actor and playwright Adrian Vargas, these twelve stories tell of the almost unendurable journey most migrant campesinos undertake to find the American Dream. The recording concludes with an afterword recorded by the author.
