The early days were rough―Portuguese immigrants banded together in fraternal societies to overcome a lack of resources and to help one another navigate a strange world whose language they did not speak. Today the Portuguese Immigrant monument in Root Park’s plaza commemorates the journey of Portuguese settlers who left everything behind to start a new life in the new world.
  • Very interesting study of these immigrants and their traditions.

  • I purchased this book for my Dad. He is of Portuguese decent and loved it. It's a good, fast read, jam packed with a lot of information.

  • This was such a fun book for me. My grandfather (Manuel Medeiros) was mentioned several times as the leader of the UPEC band. There's a picture of him and the band with my father sitting in the first seat clarinet section. I grew up with many of the people in the pictures--J.A. Freitas was my grandfather's best friend. A great book for anyone interested in the history of San Leandro.

  • Great book. Outline of the settlement of San Leandro by the numerous Portuguese who came from the Madeira Islands, the Azores, and the mainland to establish a prosperous, viable community that still exists.
