Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
This book is a social history about a group of pioneer
families that migrated north from southern Baja, California and settled along the United
States - Mexico border. Many of these families have direct kinship ties to the author.
Alvaraez reconstructs the history that brought these migrants to the border area and
attempts to identify the sociocultural patterns involved in their migration and adaptation
to a new cultural environment. The author describes in detail complex geographical,
political, and economic factors concerned with the migrations, and the development of
networks associated with the interrelationships of families through friendships, marriages,
and COMPADRAZGO relations.
