Item description for Pinnick Kinnick Hill by G. W. Gonzalez, Mark Brazaitis & Daniel F. Ferraras...

A hundred years ago, dozens of families journeyed from Spain to the United States, to search for a better life in the growing zinc industry towns in central West Virginia. As they created a new culture and a new home in this land, they added another thread to the rich fabric of our nation. Writing from his perspective as a first-generation son of this immigrant community, Gonzalez recounts his memories in a book that is partly a memoir, partly a history, and partly a novel, all combined in a sometimes heartwarming and sometimes bittersweet celebration of how one small Spanish community survived and then prospered in the ethnic caldron that was America. Available now in paperback, this bilingual edition of Pinnick Kinnick Hill, with the same side-by-side Spanish-English facing papes as the hardbound copy, is an important addition to first-person narratives that explore the American immigrant experience.

Reviews - What do customers think about Pinnick Kinnick Hill?

My ancestry in writing  Jun 19, 2007
Like the previous reviewer, I too am a descendant (grandchild) of the Spanish immigrants of the Simpson, Harrison, West Virginia area. This book was well-written and very informative.
Any descendants of the Spanish zinc workers want to form an e-mail group, and possibly a reunion? Contact me at
I loved it!  Dec 19, 2006
I have to admit, the reason I loved this book is because my grandparents came from Spain and actually lived and worked in this this very same town that Mr. Gonzalez described. In fact, they were probably neighbors. This book allowed me to get a glimpse into what life was like for my grandparents in the early 1900s.

The story is fairly well written and probably would appeal to people simply interested in the history of various minorities in the US.
