In the words of Prof. Diniz Borges “Eduardo Mayone Dias presents the reader with a series of compelling chapters detailing the vitality of the Portuguese-American communities from the primordial days of the Portuguese presence in the 1800s to the last wave of emigration from the Azores islands in the 1960s and 1970s.
The most important aspects of the Portuguese-American experience in California are narrated in a captivating prose, for Eduardo Mayone Dias has studied and written, with great passion, over a dozen books about the Portuguese communities in California.”
Translation by Katharine F. Baker , Bobby J. Chamberlain, Ph.D., and Diniz Borges.
Rear Cover Text
Eduardo Mayone Dias is a scholar and a gentleman. He has a unique place as a pioneer in the research on the history of the presence of the Portuguese in California. A native of Lisbon, he is often referred to as Azorean even by readers familiar with his work on account of the empathy he displays for the people whose culture he so well captures in his writings. The elegance of his prose is only matched by the elegance of his speech in the classroom, in his lectures or in a simple chat among friends. -Onésimo Almeida, Ph.D., Brown University
