From the perspective of the young adult he was then, Francisco
Jimenez describes the challenges he faced in his efforts to
continue his education.
During his college years, the very family solidarity that allowed
Francisco to survive as a child is tested. Not only must he leave
his family behind when he goes to Santa Clara University, but while
Francisco is there, his father abandons the family and returns to
Mexico. This is the story of how Francisco coped with poverty, with
his guilt over leaving his family financially strapped, with his
self-doubt about succeeding academically, and with separation. Once
again his telling is honest, true, and inspiring.
