About this title
Examines the accomplishments and contributions of fifteen contemporary Hispanics with a strong Texas connection, including Vikki Carr, Dan Morales, and Vicente Villa.From Booklist:
Gr. 5-8 This collective biography introduces, in alphabetical order, 16 twentieth- century Mexican-Americans who have made significant contributions in Texas. A few, such as Vikki Carr and Carmen Lomas Garza, are well-known national figures, but others such as Attorney General Dan Morales and federal judge Hilda Tagle will be of interest primarily in Texas. Entries vary in length, but all include a black-and-white photograph. Adequate for reports, the writing is dry, dispassionate, and, unfortunately, uninspiring. Still, with so little available on the topic, libraries may want to purchase this until something better comes along. A bibliography is appended but there is no index. Linda Perkins
