This is a free digital copy of the book Tejanos Through Time: Selections from the Handbook of Tejano History offered exclusively by the Texas State Historical Association. It highlights Tejano individuals, organizations and events. The book focuses on the special place in history that Tejanos have for having been a province of colonial Spain, a state in the Republic of Mexico, and an independent country before it became a part of the United States. Once the war between Mexico and the United States ended and Texas joined the American union, its history followed a distinct course of socio-economic incorporation, modernization, and identification with the American South and Southwest. Tejanos, descendants of the indigenous and colonial inhabitants of Texas, have been an integral part of Texas history as this eBook amply demonstrates.
