Welcome to Jose's neighborhood.
In his barrio, people speak an easy mix of Spanish and English and sometimes even Chinese. The masked revelry of Halloween leads into the festive remembrances of the Day of the Dead. And murals on the walls and buildings sing out the stories of the people who live here -- their backgrounds, heartaches, and hopes for the future. As familiar as any neighborhood yet as strange as a foreign country, Jose's barrio isn't in Mexico or Venezuela -- it's in San Francisco.
Award-winning author and photographer George Ancona follows Jose through a season in the barrio, and in the process gives readers a glimpse of a community as rich and varied as America itself.
