Book: ‘Untamed Dreams – Faces of America’ – Editor’s Note

Untamed Dreams – Faces of America is designed as a 393 page semi-hard cover, profusely illustrated, limited edition book that brings together individual immigrant’s life stories that represent the qualities that have long distinguished the Portuguese community of California.

In today’s political climate in which immigration seems to be at the very center of our political discord, the Portuguese Heritage Publications of California is proud to bring to you the profiles of individual immigrants, many of whom lived or are living very quiet lives away from the public eye, but whose actions, determination and caring character make every one of them a good example of the great human qualities that make America this very special place on earth.

The Heritage Collection is reserved for research projects, in English, documenting a major aspect of the history of the Portuguese experience in California. Every book is printed in a luxury edition: hardcover and full color.

Portuguese Heritage Publications is an all-volunteer based, non-profit organization, created to research, preserve and disseminate for educational purposes, vanishing memories and current relevant events about the Portuguese presence in California.
