Tale of Two Pateros chronicles the collective endeavors and triumphs in achieving sisterhood unity of the peoples of Pateros City in Washington State and Pateros in the Philippines, sparked by the circumstantial encounter and curious exploration of a group of Filipino-American travelers motoring back from a Canada visit. Originally envisioned as the last chapter of Pateros in My Spirit collegial memoir book, the author spun it into a separate pictorial publication after townmates (who love being called ka-Paterosinos) enormously contributed a rich photographic collection of interrelated events and even entailing the funding to produce this touching love offering to their cherished homeplace back in the Philippines and the other Pateros enjoyed fondly as a paradise by the Cascade Mountains in the Okanogan Valley. The two Pateros, though oceans apart and linked only in 1900 in name by a homecoming Washington military officer veteran of the Spanish-American War, rediscovered each other's history, heritage, and culture by majesty of diplomacy and blossomed friendship, formalized during the signing of sisterhood agreement amid the momentous celebration of the one hundredth year anniversary of the founding of Pateros City in 2013. Tale of Two Pateros is a clarion saga of that attainment of accord and unification preserved in engaging narratives and a feast of images offered to the future generations of the two Pateros and enticed readers.
