Highlights:

  • The magic of limping John by Frank Goodwyn (1944).

    This is the 1st edition of a mid-century novel about a fiddler (who may or may not have magic powers), set in a predominantly Mexican American community in the area of Brownsville, Texas.

  • Winning the border: Baptist missions among the Spanish-speaking peoples of the border. by Una Roberts Lawrence (1935).

    Although the history of the Southwest is heavily intertwined with Catholic Missions and missionaries; protestant evangelicalism has also played a significant role, particularly in more recent periods.  This text summarizes Baptist missionary efforts in Texas and elsewhere by the Home Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention.
