author of Esperanza Rising
2
Pam Muñoz Ryan was born and raised in
California's San Joaquin Valley. 
3
She grew up with many of her aunts and uncles and
grandparents nearby and considers herself truly
American because her cultural background is an
ethnic smorgasbord. 
She is Spanish, Mexican, Basque, Italian, and
Oklahoman.
4
While each of her stories is uniquely its own,
they hold a common connection of characters with
great strength of heart.
5
  • In Esperanza Rising (Scholastic, 2000) Ryan
    mined her own family for ideas.

Although Esperanzas personality is based on Ryan
as a child, Esperanzas riches-to-rags story
comes from Ryans grandmother.
6
  • Much of the story takes place in California
    migrant camps during the Great Depression.
