Product information

In this text, Espinoza Valle narrates the life of his grandfather, his shared memories that, indirectly, become a chronicle of beliefs, traditions, myths, ways and manners typical of the Mexico-United States border region. Part of the richness of Don Crispín's testimony lies in what he represents for the study of border culture, offering a sample of values, norms, traditions and myths that speak of the character of the border inhabitant in a way contrary to stereotypical visions. These pages reinforce what previous research already predicted: the Mexicanness of border residents is reinforced with the interaction of the foreigner and not the other way around.
