The book "The Barrio Boy" was written with several underlying themes.  However, the one that first comes to mind is the conflict between the poor Mexican Immigrants and Anglo- Saxon America.  The other conflict is the need to escape from the Revolutionary War.  In the book the family is trying to make ends meet.  They are poor but desire a better life.  They move from Mexico to a barrio in the United Sates.  They are still unable to gain any advantage financially.  The other conflict is the family's struggle to over come the economic and bureaucratic systems.
