Combines laughter and insight as Dr. Cárdenas re-lives his encounters growing up in a multicultural environment.
Born in Laredo, Texas, in 1930, he has an extensive number of relatives on both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border. Dr. Cárdenas depicts the cultural influence of Mexico and the Spanish-speaking world for a Mexican American living in the United States.
In addition to illustrating his childhood capers and his travels throughout Central and South America, he provides compelling reflections of multicultural topics such as wealth, class, language, religion, education and family.
