Chavez won the first contract for migrant farmworkers in American history, an accomplishment that upheld the dignity of Mexican Americans, who had traditionally been treated as second class citizens.
Gr 6-8-Villa, a Robin Hood-like folk hero to starving peons during the Mexican Revolution, was nonetheless a bandido, a man whose violent actions were quite opposite from the civil disobedience collectivism employed by United Farm Worker organizer Chavez a half century later. Both books present serviceable, photograph-filled biographies that are good for reports. Missing are glossaries, particularly for the Spanish words interspersed throughout the texts-some defined, some not, some whose meanings can be inferred.-John Sigwald, Unger Memorial Library, Plainview, TX Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
