"A Sweeping
Narrative"

reviews

A story for all Americans

Civic leaders, government officials, scholars and citizens are raving over Manuel Romoero's new book. It's a delight to read for anyone interested in American history and the narrative of how the Nuevomejcanos helped shaped our country.

Book cover Mi America The evolution of an America family

"A sweeping narrative of family, culture, and community"

His extensive research of the lives of his mother and father unearth a detailed and panoramic vision of Northern New Mexican history.
New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson

"A major accomplishment"

The book is a major accomplishment for a Chicano Civil Rights activist, civic leader, non-profit executive, and professor. If you listen closely, you can hear the strains of alabados in the background blended with “Europa.”
Dr. Theresa Martínez, Associate Professor of Sociology at the University of Utah

"Readers will be informed, uplifted, and inspired"

Mi America, his well-chronicled family journey - from Spain to Mexico to New Mexico to Utah - is an important contribution to the history of America and the significant impact made by Nuevomejcanos over hundreds of years. 
The Honorable Mickey Ibarra, Chairman of the Latino Leaders Network
