A powerful account of a family's journey to the fields of California -- to a life of constant moving, from strawberry fields to cotton fields, from tent cities to one-room shacks.

Al abandonar su hogar en Bonetti Ranch, una comunidad de trabajadores migrantes compuesta de dilapidadas barracas del ejército, sin agua potable ni instalaciones internas de plomería, Francisco Jiménez parte rumbo a la universidad. Deja atrás a una familia que lucha por pagar la comida y el alquiler, y a un padre abatido y desmoralizado. Lleva con él los recuerdos de muchos años viviendo bajo la pobreza y el prejuicio, y así se adentra en un mundo distinto al suyo. Y no obstante, mientras mecanografía las tareas de otros estudiantes a cambio de ropa, mientras estudia con empeño y se encuentra con inesperadas ayudas, emplea esos mismos recuerdos de su lucha y su sufrimiento para abrirse paso hacia adelante. Una vez más, las honestas palabras de Francisco Jiménez abrirán los corazones y las mentes de los lectores.

From the perspective of the young adult he was then, Francisco Jiménez describes the challenges he faced in his efforts to continue his education. During his college years, the very family solidarity that allowed Francisco to survive as a child is tested. Not only must he leave his family behind when he goes to Santa Clara University, but while Francisco is there, his father abandons the family and returns to Mexico. This is the story of how Francisco coped with poverty, with his guilt over leaving his family financially strapped, with his self-doubt about succeeding academically, and with separation. Once again his telling is honest, true, and inspiring.

"'La frontera'...I heard it for the first time back in the late 1940s when Papa and Mama told me and Roberto, my older brother, that someday we would take a long trip north, cross la frontera, enter California, and leave our poverty behind." So begins this honest and powerful account of a family's journey to the fields of California -- to a life of constant moving, from strawberry fields to cotton fields, from tent cities to one-room shacks, from picking grapes to topping carrots and thinning lettuce. Seen through the eyes of a boy who longs for an education and the right to call one palce home, this is a story of survival, faith, and hope. It is a journey that will open readers' hearts and minds.
