El Norte: The Epic and Forgotten Story of Hispanic North America

Because of our shared English language, as well as the celebrated origin tales of the Mayflower and the rebellion of the British colonies, the United States has prized its Anglo heritage above all others.

    Interesting topic, but at 437 pages plus another 123 pages of time line, bibliography, notes, and index it is more than anyone may want to read to get a perspective on the Hispanic exploration, settlement, and influence from the 16th century to the present. In many ways it was an eye-o...

    In a timely and ambitious volume, Carrie Gibson has given us an alternate history of the United States from the perspective of the Spanish conquerors of the New World all the way to the present day, with the disjuncture in the American understanding of the Hispanic roots of this countr...

    El Norte by Carrie Gibson is a free NetGalley ebook that I read in late December. Oop, this?ll likely have some carryover from reading América?. somewhat: the chapters are about the outcomes of individual cities between 1492 and the present day, though not quite from where you?...

    it was a little dry at times and barrels through people and places but then again it does cover almost 500 years of history in about 460 pages (not counting refferances) so I suppose the author had to. On the whole I learned A LOT about not just Hispanic America but the creation of wha...

    A comprehensive exploration of the "Spanish" experience in North America, from the days of Columbus to Trump and his wall. The author begins with Columbus' expedition and the conquistadores, pointing out the major themes of the story as they relate to Central and South America but ...

    Like how the author begins ... quoting Walt Whitman and going to Nogales ... book is too fat with info for reading now, and it covers an array of history I've previously devoted many, many hours. Here be quotes: " ... Whitman, writing in 1883 to decline an invitation to speak at ...

    (Note: I received an ARC of this book from NetGalley) At present it feels like more people are emboldened about aggressively pushing a message that amounts to this - the US, a nation that started as a bunch of mainly English settlers on the east coast who pushed west into the wilder...

    A well written and researched book that gives a solid overview of the complicated history of Hispanic North America. The author has given me much to think about and a thorough bibliography to help me find more information. Worth reading if you've never been aware of the impact of Hispa...

    A comprehensive history of the Spanish history of the United States from Columbus to Trump. I wondered if maybe this book might be too ambitious but I was mistaken. Gibson has clearly done a lot of research and she manages to make it very readable to the layperson. She covers U.S.-Sp...
