The most complete, balanced, and best-researched book on Operation
Pedro Pan. Engaging and beautifully written."-Felix Masud-Piloto,
author of From Welcomed Exiles to Illegal Immigrants: Cuban
Migration to the U.S., 1959-1995
"A fascinating, complex story. Shnookal has researched extremely widely, in the United States and Cuba alike, talking to protagonists in both countries. The thorny issue of Latin American migrant children in the U.S. has a long and tragic history, and Operation Pedro Pan is a significant part of this tale."-Karen Dubinsky, author of Babies without Borders: Adoption and Migration across the Americas
