Has to be 5 stars!

Any book with three photos of my grandpa Gonzalez and one of my mom has got to receive 5 stars! Latinos in Waukesha is a fantastic chronicle of the Hispanic influence in Waukesha, Wisconsin, the city where yours truly grew up and inherited 25% Mexican blood from my mother, she was half, I'm a quarter. The book consists primarily of old-school pics that shed a lot of information on Waukesha and the historical role Latinos played in it, enlightening me on some things I never knew about Waukesha and its large industrious Mexican population. If you're in any way connected to the area you might want to check out this excellent work for a fabulous and enthralling crash course in local history. The city of Waukesha is a 15 minute drive west of Milwaukee. It's a city of about 75,000 which for all intents and purposes has held its own relative identity and hasn't become a bland suburb. The rest of surrounding Waukesha County is a different matter.
