Summary

Summary

The author's love and knowledge of the land are exuberantly expressed in this book. Margaret Sullivan offers a joyously detailed introduction to a highly varied land and people. A nation of 1,000 islands, diverse eco-systems, nine languages, and several religions, the history of the Philippines has many intriguing parallels to early U.S. history. Students learn about the economy, government, and culture. Chapters on the home and school life of children, their hobbies and activities bring this culture palpably to life.There are large Filipino populations in many major U.S. cities, including Chicago and Dallas.
