Surname 1 Student's Name Professor's Name Course Date " The Book of Unknown Americans " by " Cristina Henriquez" "The Book of Unknown Americans" by "Cristina Henriquez" focuses on the stories of refugees from other countries in America in pursuit of fortune. Most people have differences, including searching for happiness, race, equality, class, and belief. They should have the feeling that they would achieve the desired performance in their home in America. Some people migrated to America to find somewhere to guarantee a healthy atmosphere to live, be heard, be recognized, and be accepted and respected (Henríquez). The American vision and the Latin experience of immigrants were attributed to the American idea that any person living there is good. Panama and Mexico's views were similar, and the intention was to find a better life. In general, the characters contend with solitude, loneliness in which they are not well known in America from their country. In this regard, the paper addresses Cristina Henriquez's study of "The Book of Unknown Americans." Rivera Arturo is Maribel's dad, and Alma is a caring mom. He works hard and is the sole housekeeper for his household in America. In the difficulties facing the family, Arturo retains his feeling of humor and hope.
