In 1859 Texas, where ethnic resentments still lurk after the American annexation of the state, an incident involving a local sheriff and a Mexican landowner sets off a chain of retaliatory acts on both sides of the border.

Texas es una historia de hombres armados por necesidad o por gusto y de mujeres indómitas, crónica de vaqueros y apaches, de afroamericanos e inmigrantes de distintos orígenes, de comancheros y cautivos, de esclavistas e insurgentes. Desde esa porción de México que se convirtió en Estados Unidos y retratando decenas de personajes, en esta novela se cuenta un gran robo que para muchos sigue siendo una herida abierta. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION Negotiations for the loss of half of the Mexican territory began in Texas. Mexicans living in that land found themselves in another country, whose population, avid for their lands, wanted them gone. This is a story of armed men and daring women, Indians and cowboys, African-Americans and immigrants, supporters of slavery and insurgents. It is also the story of an open wound, a theft that still burns in the hearts of many.
