Footprints," also known as "Footprints in the Sand," is a popular poem. This popular text is based in Christian beliefs and describes an experience in which a person is walking on a beach with God. They leave two sets of footprints in the sand. The tracks represent stages of the speaker's life. The two trails dwindle to one, especially at the lowest and most hopeless moments of the person's life.

Reviews about Footprints in the Soil: A Portuguese Californian Remembers (4):
Chinon
great history of San Ramon Valley
Pad
What a wonderful book, I enjoyed learning about my family history.
GWEZJ
Very well written and interesting story of early Portuguese life on a farm in San Ramon CA. Shows how frugal and smart her parents were and how much they valued hard work. Doesn't speak that much about specific Portuguese American culture but applies to many backgrounds. Points out living in that time and place and what people did to survive.
Yannara
I grew up in a Portuguese home and this book brings back wonderful memories of my child hood
