A spell-binding story of gut-level survival and adaptation to violent cultural change, Tlalcoyote is set in Texas and Louisiana in the early 1820s. This well-researched novel takes you from Spanish Colonial Texas to the terror and bravery of a captive's life in a Comanche camp, on into the earthy passions of slave voodoo rites on a Louisiana plantation, and finally to the colorful streets of 19th-century New Orleans with all the violence and exoticism of the period. Engagingly human, sensual, and humorous, the adventures of young Rogelio Ramirez--the Tlalcoyote of the title--are ones you will long remember.

About the Author:

Ernesto Uribe grew up on horseback, popping cattle out of the brush on a South Texas ranch where his family has raised beef since 1755. Educated in the public schools of Laredo, he went on to Texas A&M College on a track scholarship and holds a master's degree from that institution. Joining the United States Information Agency as a foreign-service officer in 1962, he filled posts primarily in Latin America until leaving the senior ranks of the service to write fiction full-time.
