De Leon's book was definately an eye-opening experience for me. I am a native Texan and have been raised to believe that the founders of our state were honest and good hearted men and women. DeLeon brings to the forefront the truth of a few of Texas' most influential leaders of the time. He mentions events and issues that no Texas school children will ever hear unless they read this book...a must read for any Texas educated individual. It will make you re-think Texas History 101.

I have read 3 of DeLeon's books, and this one by far is the most intense. DeLeon writes about the plight of Mexican-Americans living in Texas, and how and why racial prejudice manifested amongst the Anglos. It is a very descriptive and well documented work, but he fails to mention how the upper-class Tejanos avoided the brunt of the racial prejudice.
