Overview

A fascinating personal history of one woman's experience on the U.S. side of the Mexican border

A memoir of three generations of women in the South Texas borderland that aims to expose readers to the experience of an Anglo girl growing up on the Texas Mexican border in that world of baked-in prejudice. Roberta Hambaugh grew up in Mirando City near the border and weaves the stories of her grandmother, mother, and herself into a tale exposing that world of bias and how that changed in her lifetime.
