Fiction. Latino/a Studies. LAS AVENTURAS DE DON CHIPOTE is the first novel about Mexican immigration in the U.S. Originally published in 1928, this novel relates the odyssey of a Mexican campesino in the north, who arrives expecting streets of gold, and finds his ambition checked by the degradation of mere survival. The riches he finds are those of family and culture, vital forces of love and dignity for poor immigrants made to work like beasts. The author, Daniel Venegas, said Los mexicanos se haran ricos en los Estados Unidos cuando los pericos mamen. Spanish language text.
