Written by an author who comes from Puerto Rican heritage, this book is the story of a people who trace their ancestry from three different races. It tells of how they went from a beautiful Caribbean island to the cities of America for a better life. From humble, peaceful beginnings to rebellion, slavery, and invasion, the Puerto Rican people have endured trials that are common to various historical narratives but aren't commonly told in Mainland American schools. This book is the beginning of a more complete education in history and will motivate readers to be more understanding of different cultural experiences.
