The Lost Land: The Chicano Image of the Southwest


John R. Chávez

"Seeks to demonstrate that Chicanos, precisely because of their long-standing presence in the region, have developed their own images of the Southwest, many of which conflict sharply with Anglo-American views."--Raymund A. Paredes, University of California, Los Angeles

"A boldly conceived, wide-ranging essay that grapples thoughtfully with complex and subtle issues."--David J. Weber
