9781460229552: Mother's Dream - From Subic Bay to San Diego: One More Immigrant Story

In this engrossing narrative, a Filipina "baby boomer" writes about how her mother's dream led to a belated journey to a place once famously dubbed the "land of opportunity" and how her own dreams and tenacity helped her family overcome challenges in their adopted country. She relates what it was like growing up in a rustic Third-World town and working as a journalist at a U.S. military base in the Philippines, before immigrating to the United States with her husband and their two young sons. At once serious and funny, self-deprecating and down-to earth, this highly readable book, written in engaging prose, provides interesting glimpses into the American way of life in the eyes of an ordinary immigrant. A unique montage of many anecdotes, it's a MUST READ for immigrants to America - past, present or future - and anyone who has ever set foot in a place called Subic Bay.
