From This Wicked Patch of Dust:
"Nuanced and authentic....The real beauty of this book is that it mines the rich diversity of tradition and culture among Latinos, as well as the commonalities they share with other Americans- love of family, faith, and country." ---The Dallas Morning News
Crossing Borders: Personal Essays:
"Troncoso's book is a piece of artwork and a piece of heritage that everyone, not just Latinos, should take the time to read." ---Portland Book Review
