"For those of us who are involved in the struggle for equity and academic success of all students, Roberts' accounts and descriptions are accurate and familiar. For those who are trying to learn about the conditions of schooling, and about the histories, social conditions, and politics of Latino communities, Roberts' study of the Nortenos is an invaluable resource. It is also a wonderful model of sound qualitative research."
-Anthropology & Education Quarterly"A beautiful piece of work....It is particularly relevant today, in light of the rapid changes areas like Norteno are experiencing....The Norteno story illustrates the discrepancy between the speed of change and human ability to adapt to it....Roberts takes a panoramic view of a community in transition that is unusual in the field....This method provides a highly textured narrative that approaches lived experience....Although the book centers on just one community, it reminds me of Heath's Ways With Words in its even-handedness and generous descriptions of the actors in the story."
