Overview

Hinojosa's novel focuses on wealthy ranchers and their domination of the economic and political life of a small city on the Texas-Mexico border.

"By the time we have met and heard the literally hundreds of characters in Hinojosa's Valley, we know from the inside a life that no one else has written about. The stories are universal in the sense that they are about fools and heroes, about borders between cultures, between languages, between generations. But they are also unique documents of the languages spoken in one place, at one time".
