Riassunto: This classic of Asian American history is now available in an unabridged audio edition. First published in 1946, this autobiography of the well-known Filipino poet describes his boyhood in the Philippines, his voyage to America, and his years of hardship and despair as an itinerant laborer following the harvest trail in the rural West. Bulosan does not spare the reader any of the horrors that accompanied the migrant's life; but his quiet, stoic voice is the most convincing witness to the terrible events he witnessed. "It was a crime to be a Filipino in California. . . . The public streets were not free to my people: we were stopped each time these vigilant patrolmen saw us driving a car. We were suspect each time we were seen with a white woman. And perhaps it was this narrowing of our life into an island, into a filthy segment of American society that had driven Filipinos . . . inward, hating everyone and despising all positive urgencies toward freedom." - Carlos Bulosan Narrator Jose Horstman Omila is the executive director of the Philippines Performance Arts Company and the Bayanihan Arts Center in Tampa Bay, Florida. "I have been receiving calls from San Jose, New York, LA, and Chicago complimenting me on the CD, including a call from the grand-nephew of Carlos Bulosan. He said that Carlos's widow gives her best regards and thanks for the audio because now, she finally could read the book of her late husband. You see, she is now completely blind. I was almost in tears when he told me this." - Jose Omila, Narrator
