Caballero A Historical Novel

Reword by Thomas H Kreneck offer a clear picture of the importance of the work to the study of Mexican American and Texas history and to the feminist critiue of culture This work long lost in a collection of private papers and unavailable until now serves as a literary ethnography of South Texas Mexican folklore customs and traditio. I feel like every Texan needs to read this book It shows what life was like from a vantage point that we rarely get to see in Texan history The side of the Mexicans who were living in Texas when the Texans defeated Mexico History always seems to be slanted towards the winners now we get to see how hard it was to accept defeat This gem was hidden away for a long time because it was co written by a Hispanic woman during a time where neither Hispanics nor women were often published
