No. 7 Hecho en Tejas: An Anthology of Texas Mexican Literature (2006)

Dagoberto Gilb, editor

Hecho en Tejas

This compendium, a historical survey of literary and artistic expression—including paintings, drawings, and popular songs—offers readers a deep look at the missing story of Texas. From the anonymous corrido tradition and the lyrics of Lydia Mendoza to the prose of John Rechy and the poetry of Rosemary Catacalos, this is a portable archive of a long-ignored but central literary tradition within the Texas epic. “I want this book to overwhelm the ignorance . . . about Raza here in Texas,” writes Gilb in the introduction, “the people who settled and were settled and still remain in Texas.”
