What did you love best about Our America?
Finally, a more balanced history of the US. We are not all descended from European settlers. The history of America is not just north America. Indians and Mexicans were there before European settlers and their story is often wilfully neglected.
What other book might you compare Our America to and why?
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
The story of the American West, how it was stolen.
Any additional comments?
This should be part of the curriculum in US high schools.

I completely agree with the author's underlying thesis that the people of the United States need to recognize our Hispanic heritage in order to reconcile ourselves to the future. This is an important contribution to that effort, so I won't dwell on our minor points of disagreement. I was disappointed be David DeSantos' singsong narration, though, especially when he adopts a sort of Ricky Ricardo accent to quote the English translation of Spanish speakers.
