Synopsis: Biographies of noted Hispanic Americans include portraits of Geraldo Rivera, Antonia Novello, Joan Baez, Nancy Lopez, and others
From School Library Journal:
Grade 6 Up?Three entries in a projected series of eight. Marvis offers an exciting compilation of Latinos who have gained fame through their hard work in a variety of fields ranging from astronauts to television anchors to singers to politicians. Each clearly written and interesting volume contains biographical sketches of two men and two women. The sections include highlights of the person's life; accounts of their struggles, triumphs, and dreams; quotes affirming the American dream; and black-and-white photographs. The large print and open format make the books appealing to hi/lo readers. They also provide Latino role models for YAs. No longer will finding a source for reports on contemporary Hispanics be a trial for students, teachers, and librarians.?Maria Redburn, Collier County Public Library, Immokalee, FL
