Daughter of the Border
by Roberta Hamburgh




Overview -

A memoir of three generations of women in the South Texas borderland that aims to expose readers to the experience of an Anglo girl growing up on the Texas Mexican border in that world of baked-in prejudice.

Roberta Hambaugh grew up in Mirando City near the Laredo/Nuevo Laredo border and weaves the stories of her grandmother, mother, and herself into a tale exposing that world of bias and how that changed in her lifetime. These women, along with the kind, generous men who attached themselves to them, lived in what the poet Randall Jarrell has referred to as the "cake of custom, the lung fish embedded in a world of prejudice which one can't see."

The land spewed forth people whose speech belied racial prejudice while at the same time worked to make living and have educational situations better for the people whom they placed themselves above as the "high and mighty."
