There can be no doubt that the Spanish-speaking constitute a clearly delineated ethnic group. Cultural geographic study of ethnic variation at the scale of subregions in the United States found early direction by Wilbur Zelinsky, who outlined the rudiments of twelve major groups during the 1960s and created a structure for classifying regional units by culture area.

Indigenous peoples lived in the area now known as Texas long before Spanish explorers arrived in the area. However, once Spaniards arrived and claimed the area for Spain, a process known as mestizaje occurred, in which Spaniards and Native Americans had mestizo children who had both Spanish and indigenous blood.

Texas musicians have pioneered new musical genres, instruments, and playing styles, proving themselves to be daring innovators who often call the tune for musicians around the country and even abroad. To introduce some of these trailblazing Texas musicians to a wider audience and pay tribute to their accomplishments, Michael Corcoran profiles thirty-two of them in "All Over the Map: True Heroes of Texas Music".

On the plains between the San Antonio River and the Rio Grande lies the heartland of what is perhaps the largest ethnic region in the United States, Tejano South Texas. In this cultural geography, Daniel Arreola charts the many ways in which Texans of Mexican ancestry have established a cultural province in this Texas-Mexico borderland that is unlike any other Mexican American region.

Arreola begins by delineating South Texas as an environmental and cultural region. He then explores who the Tejanos are, where in Mexico they originated, and how and where they settled historically in South Texas. Moving into the present, he examines many factors that make Tejano South Texas distinctive from other Mexican American regions—the physical spaces of ranchos, plazas, barrios, and colonias; the cultural life of the small towns and the cities of San Antonio and Laredo; and the foods, public celebrations, and political attitudes that characterize the region. Arreola's findings thus offer a new appreciation for the great cultural diversity that exists within the Mexican American borderlands.

In this objective, well-balanced study, Daniel Arreola gives us a convincing overview of a distinctive cultural region. His historical chapters provide a clear background for South Texas's strong cultural ties with Mexico, which have been maintained since Texas became a U.S. state. Arreola found that, along the Texas border, no less than thirty-two counties are more than fifty per cent Mexican-American; in twenty of them, more than 70 per cent of the people are of Mexican ancestry. The city of Laredo, a major transit point for Mexican-American trade, is more than ninety per cent Mexican-American. Arreola provides detailed ethnic analyses of some cities, including San Antonio, showing how some are geographically divided into Mexican and Anglo areas. He comments on the region's distinctive cultural traditions, including public celebrations and food (one of the many maps shows the line between the taco and barbecue cultures in Texas). South Texas has been politically distinct as well, giving birth to the Chicano movement. Some communities are setting precedents in the educational and legal uses of Spanish, in effect making it an official language. Written in clear English, this book deserves attention from those involved the question of Mexican immigration.

Yes. Great book. Love the maps. Among other things, Arreola helps us see the deep culture of geographic spaces from the past, reflected in the street layouts of today.
