Over 35,000 Filipinos in America at this time were mostly skilled farm workers recruited from the Philippines, used to counter the laziness, of whites and other ethnic groups. So Filipinos like JULIO, called the Manongs, “retired” them. Julio continues to spend money on dance tickets dancing with Joy bringing mounting tensions among local natives.

The author has a background as a PRODUCER, WRITER, DIRECTOR, EDITOR, DJ, basketball coach, Real Estate agent, Investor, Financial professional, Entrepreneur. His background helped shape the creation of this book told by first person account stories passed on by generations of first time OFW Filipino Americans stories newly written in this semi-fictional book for you to discover about life of FilAms during the era of the 1930’s.
When asked about why he wrote the book, Pagtama said: “What compelled me to write this new book novel was that I did not want to waste anymore time, the opportunity and rich history in writing about the OFW’s better known as the Overseas Filipino Workers now estimated to be over ten point five million worldwide. They are everywhere all around the globe. I want to shed light on the stories about the Filipinos global. There are so many stories that go untold and I wanted to share this rich historical story with the world about a group of young Filipinos coming to a new country and living America so I decided to write this story and paint a picture with words on the possibilities of the lifestyle of Filipino Americans during the era of the 1930’s some consider the lost generation bringing it to life forever though this book.”
Pagtama has hopes that the book will take you on an adventure and help you better understand the world these people were living in during the era of the nineteen thirties. This positive outlook from the author is certainly testament to his optimism considering some of the mishaps during its creation. At one point there were several mishaps, for example at one point this book novel was originally just an idea during many brainstorming conversations with my dad Abe and then for over three years now the process turned into a business plan, a full feature length screenplay and then finally a book novel expanded giving more juicy details into the lives of these Filipino men and life of people in America during the era of the 1930’s.
In a recent interview, the author made a point of thanking people dear to his heart the author thanked his dad Abe, mom Rhoda, sister Karen, family, teachers, mentors and God his love and savior Jesus Christ for their part in the creation of the book, saying: “Thank you mom and dad the best parents ever for bringing me into this world and blessing me with a great life.”
