The book, a Statue of Liberty – Ellis Island Centennial Series publication, examines the Mexican citrus worker villages in southern California during the period 1900-1950. “In the development of a large part of the citrus industry in Orange County, California, the Mexican has played the role of a humble but nonetheless necessary Atlas, bearing upon his shoulders in an inconspicuous manner the foundations of this prosperity.” Jessie Hayden, La Habre Americanization teacher
