Once Upon a Time in Brownsville

201 pages3 hours


Brownsville, Texas is a charming town by the Mexican border on the Gulf Coast. This extraordinary place, combined with the world-changing period of the early-mid 1900's, make the setting for Linda Longoria-Neff's anthology of fictional short stories.

These tales are composed with a blend of history, culture, and decades of life experience in a land rich in Spanish, Mexican, Texan, and American history. Journey back in time and become immersed in bicultural, bilingual, biracial family life through the Longoria-Neff's credible eyes.

The elements of tradition, religion, classism, gender roles, and Hispanic folklore woven throughout these anecdotes give us an authentic view of how it was... once upon a time.
