Odyssey To Opportunity

Rated 5.00/5 based on 2 reviews
Roger's Odyssey reflects his personal striving to share in the opportunities present for all in America, but which for many, prove unattainable. This autobiography represents his commitment to the ideals which have given shape and meaning to his life. This is what makes Odyssey a story worth reading—and remembering.

Review by: Roger R. Fernandez on Nov. 23, 2010 : (no rating)
Some time ago, Alfonso Morales, professor at Los Angeles City College reviewed this book. He wrote in part:

“Written in the third person, Odyssey to Opportunity is an autobiographical story of a boy from a mountain village in northwestern Spain who becomes an educator in the United States of America. It recounts a rather unusual but wondrous odyssey sparked by a strong will to achieve and molded by the tragedies of history. The charming simplicity of its sincere and motivating tale makes of this book a second opportunity, so that the reader may assume life as beautiful…

In engaging, candid, understated and, at times, lyrical style and prose, Fernández strings together forceful and stimulating memories of his episodic, adventurous and picaresque life. His anecdotal and pleasant narrative lays out observations and reminiscences that entertain and creates an atmosphere of global cultural learning. Thus, he offers the reader special insight into the various cultures with which he comes into contact in his travels throughout Europe, Africa and the Americas…”

If you enjoy Hispanic culture and travel logs you will enjoy this as much as I did. Armchair adventurers prick up your ears: this is for you.
