In Mission Flats, William Landay tells the story of the Mexican Americans who settled in the East Los Angeles neighborhood of Boyle Heights in the 1940s and 1950s. These families were the backbone of the community, working hard to build a life for themselves and their families. Yet despite their dedication, the community was constantly threatened by racism and discrimination.

Landay tells the stories of these families through the eyes of their children, who recount the hardships they experienced in school, at work, and in their community. They also share their memories of the friends they made and the challenges they faced. Through their words, Landay captures the resilience of the Mexican American community and the hope that they brought to their neighborhood.; 8vo; Signed by Author.
