Yamileth's own words. From start to finish, Undocumented in L.A.: An Immigrant's Story is testimonial literature at its best. This eye-opening work will show the reader the opposition and difficulties undocumented immigrants face in a nation that at first beckons them with freedom, then rejects them with unwelcoming borders and restrictive laws. Undocumented in L.A.: An Immigrant's Story is an excellent resource for courses in immigration, political science, and social and cultural studies.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This is a rough-edged, authentic look at the marginal lives led by many illegal immigrants who live among us. * Amazon.Com Expert Editors Review *
Hart injects her own sharp perceptions regarding the circumstances of illegals in the United States, and there are unique insights into the riots following the Rodney King verdict as well... Well recommended for academic and public libraries. * Library Journal *
This book tells the tale of conflict and contradiction in the lives of illegal immigrants with authenticity and compassion. Using testimonies gathered over seven years, Hart makes the plight of an undocumented woman clear. -- K. Lynn Stoner, Arizona State University
A beautiful and sensitive oral history of an indomitable Nicaraguan woman who-when life became impossible in her own nation-made the difficult journey to the United States only to face the many hardships of an undocumented immigrant in Los Angeles. Very moving! -- Thomas W. Walker, Ohio University
The story of a single struggling family is detailed warmly and convincingly by author Dianne Walta Hart. * Los Angeles Times *
