Because of its documentary nature, Life in Laredo offers insights into the comings and goings of its early citizens not to be found elsewhere. Scholars and students of Texas and Mexican American history, as well as the Laredoans celebrating the 250th anniversary (in 2005) of Laredo's founding, will welcome this volume.
