Book Image Not Available
Overview
A new wave of pioneering immigrants has rushed headlong into Arizona the last forty years. Mexican entrepreneurs, Asian market and restaurant owners, Indian software engineers, European winemakers, and African community leaders, have all thrived in a rich atmosphere of business opportunity. Anne Snowden Crosman interviewed hundreds of immigrants, from Flagstaff and the Verde Valley to Phoenix and Tucson. To each, she asked the question, "What is your secret of survival and success?' They all answered, "Hope, hard work, persistence, and determination." "And why did you come to America?" she asked. In unison, they replied, "For the happiness to live in a free country."
