"Scholars as well as the general reader will find Desert Immigrants an engaging and informative book. It is based on a detailed reading of El Paso's English and Spanish language newspapers as well as oral interviews and manuscript collections. A myriad of facts and names are meticulously organized to make a general argument. The book succeeds in linking the local history to larger themes in American history and as such stands as an example to be emulated by other historians of the Southwest."-Richard Griswold del Castillo, Journal of American History "Carefully and thoroughly researched, the study examines Mexican immigration, housing, education, politics, economics, and culture and clearly demonstrates that Mexicans contributed significantly to the development of El Paso as an important railroad, mining, commercial and ranching center of the Southwest."-Library Journal "Well organized, well documented, and well written."-Choice "The book is a major contribution - the product of serious research, competently written, and almost entirely free of partisan emotion."-C.L. Sonnichsen, The Journal of Arizona History "A gracefully written social and urban history."-Luis Leobardo Arroyo, La Red/The Net (National Chicano Newsletter)
