Description

The author says this is about an old Mexican cemetery caught inside a whitewashed suburban community. It is about the S.an Isidro cemetery in Southeast Texas mostly for eth.tnic Mexicans but also for prisoners and slaves, located in Sugarland in Fort Bend County, presently considered one of the wealthiest areas in then state and even a nation. The author found a “land right merry with the sun” a plave she visited as a child. Andrés Tijerina, author of Tejanos and Texans under the Mexican Flag, 1821-1836 and co-author of Tejano Empire says , ” has a haunting quality that draws the reader into the story and the author’s personal quest for identity. The book successfully demonstrates the historical omission of minority events and leaders from Texas History…It is timely for its critique of the hagiography and myth in Texas history.”
