"I applaud Octavio Pimentel's refigured approach to using a Mexican American methodology of case studies to capture the historias de éxito and 'cultural ways of being' of Luis and Quetzin. Those who conduct ethnographies and case studies on Mexican Americans have much to gain from studying Pimentel's 'confianza' relationship with these two individuals. Pimentel's approach to oral life-narratives should be a model to emulate for researchers who study Mexican Americans." - Cristina Kirklighter, co-editor of Voices and Visions: Refiguring Ethnography in Composition
"Pimentel's Historias de Éxito Within Mexican Communities re-defines notions of success with the experiences of laborers who defined it for themselves. Illuminating racist systems of power, Pimentel skillfully crosses disciplinary boundaries in his examination of immigration, geographic space, and language. This book contextualizes lived experiences of invisible ghosts in the American machine with a critical evaluation of US-Mexico history." - Cruz Medina, author of Reclaiming Poch@ Pop: Examining the Rhetoric of Cultural Deficiency
