Gr 5-9--As the corresponding volumes in the "Hispanics of Achievement" series (Chelsea) are aimed at a somewhat older audience, these solid, if stolid, new biographies should find a place in libraries serving younger or less-practiced readers. Gonzales offers a balanced picture both of Chavez and of the conditions he sought to change, pointing out that not all farmowners were totally ruthless exploiters of migrant labor, and ascribing the UFW's later decline in influence and membership to its founder's unwillingness to delegate responsibility. Goodnough not only describes Marti's efforts to promote Cuban independence--and to torpedo the U.S.A's attempts to dominate the Caribbean political and economic scene--but also analyzes the man's cultural legacy, from penning the words to "Guantanamera" to founding the modernist movement in Latin America. Both authors back up their accounts with endnotes and include limited selections of dark black-and-white photographs and reproductions.
