Description - Operation Pedro Pan by Yvonne M. Conde

Between 1960 and 1962, over 14,000 children were sent out of Cuba alone by desperate parents who feared for their children's future under Castro. The author, herself a Pedro Pan child, has recorded hundreds of their diverse stories and experiences from American foster homes and orphanages. These children share their feelings about this painful time in their lives. The book investigates the events and key figures surrounding the exodus, including the roles of the Catholic church and the State Department, and the extent of the CIA's involvement.
