The book, one of the few age-appropriate texts for teens and young people who learn about the history of the holiday, is a deep insight into the French invasion of Mexico and why the Cinco de Mayo celebration became so popular in the United States. With plenty of historical information that can be used year-round to complement the Spanish language and history program, the book is the perfect addition to the classroom.
The original 2006 edition was updated to include color photographs in each chapter and maps to help readers navigate the story. There is also a new cover that has already won awards in the field of graphics for the book design firm that created it. The photos were taken by the author and his wife (a native of Mexico) during more than 50 years of family visits and travels to as many as 53 cities in Mexico.
“The style is fast, smooth and dramatic, colorful and often funny. Cinca de Mayo is a fun read for history buffs, no matter what their favorite nation and time is, ”said Joy Calderwood of Reader’s Choice Reviews.
Don Miles reveals many colorful and human aspects that are often lost in traditional technical history, ”said Dr. Robert Pierce, Honored Professor of Journalism and Communication at the University of Florida. “His deep knowledge of Mexican culture is reflected in everything he writes.”
