More than a fascinating history by a renowned academic and writer, its also a celebration of Latino life. With a distinct pop-culture look and carnival feel, this cartoon guide is for anyone who wants to know more about the contributions and lifestyles of the Latino people -- from serious academics to inquisitive teenagers. Note: Latino means Spanish-speaking people who live in the United States, mainly Mexican-Americans (62%), but also Cubans, Puerto Ricans, Dominicans, Columbians, Nicaraguans, and other Central and South Americans.
