According to the Migration Policy Institute website, large-scale Mexican migration to the United States started in the early 1900s. The same website estimates that 11.6 million Mexican immigrants are residing in the United States as of 2013. In his recently released memoir, “In Search of California” (published by Xlibris), Ross Sanchez takes readers beyond these numbers, offering a firsthand glimpse into the immigrant experience and what it is like to move into a new culture and unfamiliar land.

“In Search of California” follows the author’s family in their journey to find a better life in the United States. It is a real-life family saga that describes the challenges they faced as they transitioned from life in Old Mexico to a foreign country. The title refers to their dream of one day making it to California.

“Since I was able to talk and understand, I remember father talking about California as though it were a perfect paradise,” Sanchez says, “I wanted to go. I needed to reach this place. I was determined to find California.”

As the narrator of their remarkable, real-life adventure, Sanchez is candid and his account is informative, opening readers’ eyes to the trials and triumphs that immigrants experience.
