Author Bio Ernesto Galarza — was a labor organizer, historian, professor, and community activist. Reviews "To re-encounter Barrio Boy by Ernesto Galarza is to indulge in deja vu from the early Chicano Movement concerns about acculturation and identity construction.

The genuine story about a boy's journey reminds many of us of our own trajectory and how we had to negotiate a new ethnic self. The lessons are moving and heart-warming as markers of a collective perseverance and survival. The story embodies a key phase of immigration when the barrio becomes our first community to embrace or overcome. After all is said and done, the 'barrio boy' stays true to himself as an apprentice to Americanism without sacrificing his origins.

He proves that being bicultural and bilingual are positive qualities worthy of upholding. Lomeli, University of California, Santa Barbara.
