I bought this book for a Mexican- American history class and this book along with my class really made me change my views on the issue of immigration. As an Anglo-American I always viewed the Mexicans and other Latinos as immigrants and foreigners but after this class and reading this book I realized I'm more of an immigrant in my community. As a history student this book thought me about the history of my own backyard since I live in California. One person found this helpful.

Other Mexicans living there just remained where their families had lived perhaps for centuries, first under the Spanish flag and afterwards under Mexican sovereignity. Some served part time in the presidios" (local militias) that faced the attacks of the natives - apache, Comanches, etc- that at the time forayed as south as Chihuahua or even Nuevo Leon. The process in California was a bit similar, but without the traumatic events of the war of Texan Independence of 1836, violence was not as evident but still existed.

A native of Buffalo, New York, and a graduate of the public schools of Cheektowaga, New York, and the State University of New York at Fredonia, Weber earned a PhD in Latin American history at the University of New Mexico in 1967. In 1973, the University of New Mexico published Foreigners in Their Native Land: Historical Roots of the Mexican Americans, which became a foundational work in the burgeoning field of Mexican American history and is still in print and widely used in classrooms.

  • I have enjoy reading the rich history of the Southwest that has been presented here using educated deduction with a number of different written records from the time period. It was a refreshingly relatively clear view of Texas history that I think our youngest minds should be learning instead of the trite information that is being taught in today's school.

    Texan children are taught to idolize Davy Crockett and the other Colonial settlers in the pursuit of justice over the crazy Santa Ana and his Mexican army, but no one mentions that the Anglo American Colonists fought along side Early Mexican Settlers, or that Mexican signatures helped legalize the Texas Declaration of Independence. This book explores that as well as the acquisition of New Mexico, Arizona, and California, in a balanced light by sharing letters written by Anglo Americans and Mexicans of the time.

    If your interested in culture or history give a very unique view into a time that has been glamorized for over a century with bad information.

  • I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to read this book since it was written as a text book but I had a hard time putting it down once I got started. The facts are eye opening.

  • well done

  • I actually bought this book as part of an ongoing genealogy investigation.

    What I found was the type of history that I really enjoy reading about; these are stories from people to people. I never could stand history as a bunch of events with dates as they never explain reasons for the events and dates. Many books retrospectively give you their opinion of names and dates.

    Also I like the fact that the book is very personal. I will not go through the details of each presentation is that’s why you are buying the book.

    This book focuses on descendents of Spaniards and Indians and brings you almost up to date on their unique experiences.

    For some people this brings a new perspective for others it just fills in a whole in their missing history.

    Forget about politics – forget about history – and just have a good read.
