I was in high school nearly two decades after Renato Rosaldo and about a hundred miles north of his teenage home in Tucson, but this small book touched me and reminded me of my own Phoenix high school experience in many ways. A lovely, poetic reminiscence of what seems like a lovely group of fellas who sure have made something of themselves. The book's design elements and the photos bring this book to life.
