This bold Southwestern tale by award-winning author C.W. Smith comes from the TCU Press' Texas Tradition Series. Raised by an Anglo family after being orphaned, MEndez has been given the chance to succeed. His cousin Manuelo, however, is struggling just to survive. When Manuelo breaks the law, MEndez must decide whether to continue living a comfortable life or to risk it all and fight for his kin. ". a sympathetic and fairly subtle study of the intellectual who straddles the line between revolution and co-option (by virtue of his cleverness) into the ruling class."-Kirkus Reviews
