Chicanos: Mexicans in the United States. A Stepping-Stone Book.
Martin, Patricia Miles
Written for second and third grade children, the book gives an account of Chicanos in the United States. Beginning with the Mayas, Toltecs, and Aztecs, it explains the history of Mexico, the Spanish conquest, and the northward movement of the "Mestizos". Subsequent chapters detail the immigration movement across the Rio Grande in search of work. Most of the immigrants at that time became migrant farm workers. A description of a migrant labor camp is given, and an explanation of urban "barrios". Chicano culture, the advantages of bilingualism, cultural discrimination, famous Chicanos today, and important contributions to American culture are also covered. (KM)
