About the Author
Américo Paredes (1915-1999) was a professor at the University of Texas at Austin and founded the UT Center for Mexican American Studies.
To see why Gregorio became a folk hero, one only has to remember that in practice there was one law for Anglo-Texans, another for Texas Mexicans. The chase, capture, and imprisonment of Cortez are high drama.... This is an extraordinary book.
