UNTAMED DREAMS – Faces of America
SAN JOSE, CA—August 1, 2016 —Portuguese Heritage Publications of California (PHPC) announces the release of its newest publication Untamed Dreams – Faces of America.
Untamed Dreams – Voices of America has long been a project at the very heart of Portuguese Heritage Publications. Having published many books on the history of the experience of the Portuguese in California, it now needed a work that would bring together some individual life stories representative of the qualities that have long distinguished the Portuguese community.
No stone was left unturned in the search for these individuals. Looking in every age and economic group, PHPC zoomed into every Portuguese community in the great state of California in order to assemble the diverse group that would be representative of the character traits that have long distinguished this community.
In today’s political climate in which immigration seems to be at the very center of our national political discord, PHPC is very proud to reveal the profiles of a group of individuals, many of whom living or have lived very quiet lives away from the public eye, but whose actions, character, determination and caring attitudes make every one of them a good example of the great human qualities that make America this very special place on earth.
Portuguese-American writer and poet, Frank X Gaspar, authored the preface, a testimony of his talent and his deference towards his Portuguese heritage.
