Summary
Texans of Mexican descent built a unique and highly developed ranching culture that thrived in South Texas until the 1880's. In Tejano Empire, historian Andres Tijerina describes the major elements that gave the Tejano ranch community its identity: shared reaction to Anglo-American in-migration, tightly interconnected families, cultural loyalty, networks of communication, Catholic religion, and a material culture well adapted to the conditions of the region
