Editorial Review

A noteworthy review of A Proud Heritage: The Hispanic Library from Library Media Connection on October 1, 2003

Cover: The Mexican War: How the United States Gained Its Western Lands

Latinos in the present United States have a rich history. The Hispanic Library covers aspects of that history well for younger readers. From Father Serra and the missions in California, to Christina Aguilera, the series informs readers on the contributions of Latinos to the history of the United States. It presents information in an honest manner, which includes how people like Father Serra were controversial in the history of the New World. Each volume includes sidebars with additional information, a glossary, timeline, and index. As the Latino population in the United States continues to grow, students will have the need for additional information on this important group in America.
