Summary
In recovering Santiago Tafolla's memoir, scholars and great-granddaughters Carmen and Laura have contributed a remarkable work of inestimable historical and literary value, Tafolla's rich and nuanced memoir details a young Hispano's life in the vortex of U. S. wars of Western expansionism and in the Civil War. Tafolla, who crosses limits and boundaries of language, religion and political allegiance, is a critically important nineteenth century voice. His memoir significantly adds to our knowledge and understanding of Latina/o history and literature; it is a must for every library!--Antonia Castañeda, Ph.D., Independent Scholar"
