Product Description

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.


“Suarez . . . reads with passion about his subject. Recommended to fans of the documentary series or those looking for a powerful overview of Latino Americans’ substantial contribution to American history.”
      —Library Journal

“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. . . . [Suarez] does a terrific job. . . . [He] succeeds in his stated goal of getting listeners to think differently about this country and to appreciate the Latino contributions to our history.”
