MEDIA REVIEWS
"Conde does an excellent job of narrating the essential outline of the history of Operation Pedro Pan, and an equally superb job of analyzing the circumstances that created this exodus, from the view point of those who felt compelled to create it and keep it going.."
-Hispanic American Historical Review
"A moving and fascinating tale about the painful passage to liberty of thousands of Cuban children spirited out of their country in ingenious fashion by families who chose separation over repression. With "OPERATION PEDRO PAN, Conde has added another chapter to the long "saga of the American struggle for freedom--with the youngest of characters as her heroes. Bravo!."
-Alex Abella, The Killing of the Saints
"In a 1999 book called OPERATION PEDRO PAN: The Untold Exodus of 14,048 Cuban Children, Yvonne Conde, a journalist who was herself a Pedro Pan evacuee, collects these children's stories. In light of the Gonzalez case, they make compelling reading -- and the picture they paint of parental bonds swamped by cold war politics ought to give serious pause to anyone who wants to keep Elian here."
-The New Republic
