What Readers Are Saying:

"Many Texans are unaware of the tremendous influence the Mexican Revolution had on Texas. From El Paso to Brownsville, from San Antonio to Laredo, in the years from 1910 to 1917 and in the decades that followed, the Lone Star State was decidedly affected. Many of those fleeing across the Rio Grande were not just the poor but many of Mexico's well-educated economic and political elite, many of whom never returned to Mexico, and who came to have a profound and positive influence on communities north of the border, especially Laredo and San Antonio. For the first time, primarily due to the very capable editorial efforts of Arnoldo DeLeón, one of today's best known historical sleuth-hounds, as well as a number of other leading scholars, we have a full and complete treatment of this fascinating subject, including an accurate final accounting of exactly how many Tejanos died at the hands of the Texas Rangers in the Lower Rio Grande Valley." — Jerry Thompson, Regent's Professor of History of Texas A&M International University
