Booknews
The first volume of a three-volume history focuses on Mexican-American faith communities in the Southwest, California, and the Midwest. It examines the Native American, Spanish colonial, and Mexican heritage that informed Mexican-American Catholic communities, discusses the marginalization of the Mexican community in California in the early part of the 20th century, and traces the establishment of the first Hispanic communities outside the Southwest.
