"En 1961, para proteger a sus tre hijos pequeños del caos y la confusión, los padres de Vidal los enviaron a Estados Unidos a través de un programa denominado Operación Peter Pan. Sin embargo, en lugar de ser ubicados en la casa de sus familiares en Miami, los hermanos quedaron confinados en el sombrío y violento Orfelinato Sagrado Corazón en Colorado. La familia finalmente se volvería a reunir casi cuatro años después. A la vez que enfrentaba el choque cultural, las dificultades financieras, el desarraigo familiar, la discriminación y el sinfín de dificultades que acompañan al inmigrante en tierras ajenas, la familia fue forjando lentamente una nueva vida."--P. [4] of cover.
"In 1961, fearing the communist rule of Fidel Castro, Guillermo Vicente Vidal's family sent him to America through Operation Peter Pan. He arrived in Colorado and was sent to an orphanage with his brothers, and his family reunited four years later. Fifty years later, he served as Denver's mayor. This is his story of overcoming incredible odds"-- Provided by publisher.
