Summary
"Kreneck not only traces the influential life of Houston entrepreneur and civic leader Felix Tijerina as an individual but illustrates how Tijerina reflected many trends in Mexican American development during the decades he lived, years that were crucial for the Hispanic community today. Kreneck outlines a pattern of identity and assimilation that has been traced in bold, broader terms by other scholars, who have called Tijerina's contemporaries the "Mexican American Generation.""--Jacket
