About the Book

What would happen if you ventured to a new country halfway around the world where you could not speak the language? This was the situation faced by your ancestors as they began the quest for a new and better life. It was to be a life full of hardships and injustice. Child labor was legal, and safety laws were nonexistent. In addition to the high rate of job injuries, jobs were without fringe benefits.

Immigrants toiled in unsafe work conditions for poverty wages with no hope of citizenship for twenty years. It was a life to be endured with only hopes and dreams for daily sustenance. This enthralling story will take you on a journey you will never forget! This is a story for all of us, because it is the story of our ancestors. Join Ramon Quiroga Santiso as he walks the trail of history with them the history that built America!
