summary
Peter Jamero's story of hardship and success illuminates the experience of the "Bridge Generation" of Filipino Americans born in the 1930s and '40s - the sons and daughters of the manong generation of immigrants, whose lives cross boundaries of being both Filipino and American. Jamero describes his childhood in a farm labor camp and his career as a community activist, civic leader, and administrator of health and human service programs in Sacramento, Washington, D.C., Seattle, and San Francisco.
