The ranchers : a book of generations by Stan Steiner( Book )

5 editions published between 1980 and 1985 in English and held by 656 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For more than thirty years, Stan Steiner has been wandering up and down the dusty back roads of the American West, listening to descendants of the pioneers recall how they lived out this century on the frontier. These old homesteaders have maintained their faith in a long-gone rural America, an America in which they had to "make do" -- with their wit, their ingenuity, the work of their hands, their individualism, their independence. Among them are the Skinner family, six generations of which have been born in the Jordan Valley of eastern Oregon, on a ranch that was acquired before Oregon became a state; Boyd Charter, whose father rode with Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, and who brought a St. Louis girl from finishing school to a log house in the Bull Mountains of Montana; Rita and Janaloo Hill, mother and daughter, who can be found in the general store of the New Mexico ghost town they own; Tug and Ruth Pettit, who may have been the last Americans to cross the plains in a covered wagon (in 1932). These proud and rugged people talk about cooking without fire, about learning the secrets of dry farming, about struggling against storm and drought, and about how they came to respect the life around them and to cherish the land. The Ranchers is full of the richness of western storytelling, a book that is both a contribution to the history of the West and a faithful portrait of remarkable men and women living a true American experience -- Book jacket

The Mexican Americans by Stan Steiner( Book )

15 editions published between 1960 and 1979 in English and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For more than 400 years the ancestors of the Mexican American have contributed to the spiritual and material wealth of this land, yet recognition of their cultural and national rights has been slow to come. Like the American Indians, Chicanos can claim, "We did not come to America, America came to us". As a conquered people, they have been repressed by the dominant society. Mexican Americans can trace their ancestry back to the Spanish conquistadores who subjugated the Aztec. From the blending of the two cultures came the Mestizo population. It was the Mestizos and Mexicans, rather than the Spaniards, who settled the American Southwest; but most of the millions of acres of rich lands granted by the Spanish Land Grants were lost after the U.S. victory in the Mexican American War. Some Mexican Americans worked as laborers on the large farms or ranches; others migrated to the cities and settled in the barrios. From within the barrios has come the growth of the Chicano movement, which protests against the status quo and its social institutions and seeks to establish Mexican Americans as part of the social and political structure of the nation. Mexican Americans today number between 7 to 12 million and will soon be the largest minority in America. Their future depends on how they define their national identity and the direction they choose to take as a national minority. It also depends on how the nation itself chooses to define the political and constitutional union that binds our culturally pluralistic people together. (Ds)
