Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document This book offers a vivid portrait of daily life and community in a Mexican American barrio of Dallas. The author is highly sensitive and sympathetic to her subjects; thus her portrayal successfully captures a good deal of the sense of Mexican-American 'lived experience.' Patterns of discrimination against the barrio inhabitants by Anglos and the nature of the barrio community are lucidly described.
