Pt muckety muck politicians who ravish San Diego from their Washington DC offices That Ruiz de Burton intended her book to serve as a history For Discrimination lesson or as a correction to historyessons that were already in the 1880s depicting as glorious the Anglo American annexation of the savage California bush is not debatable She subtitles the book A Novel Descriptive of Contemporary Occurrences in California and gives a few of the chapters overtly historical political names ike Chapter II The Don s View of the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo Chapter XVI Spanish Land Grants Viewed Retrospectively Chapter XXXII A False Friend Sent to Deceive the Southerners and my personal favorite Chapter XXXIV The Sins of Our Legislators I ve read other postbellum novels with similar political projects Margaret Mitchell s stellar Gone With the Wind Comes To Mind But Never Have comes to mind but never have encountered a fiction that so bluntly skewers the egislators who fueled or were complicit with the Repressed Memories A Journey to Recovery from Sexual Abuse FiresideParkside Recovery Book laws that crippled communities that had the misfortune to fall below the Mason DixonineThe final chapters of the book in which the narrator and her characters both summon Herbert Spencer s and Thomas Carlyle s arguments in support of acting morally rather than selfishly read Experiments in a Jazz Aesthetic less andess African Literature 9 like a novel andike a manifesto The voices of the characters who have been wronged by unjust federal Alien Conquest legislation merge with the voice of Ruiz de Burton s vastly omniscient narrator until in the final chapter which is titled only Conclusion there is no mention of Don Mariano or of Clarence and Mercedes Darrell There is only the author s political and ethical condemnation of an America that allowed a greedy powerful few to drag into muddy poverty the whole of the hard working well educated Spanish American Californian manyDespite its imperfect I m being generousiterary style I find The Suatter and the Don easy to endorse particularly for its treatment of the so called Mexican American experience My recommendation Pay close to endorse particularly for its treatment of the so called Mexican American experience My recommendation Pay close to the introduction revel in the speeches to and about the politicians who were bribed into opposing the expansion of the Texas Pacific Railroad and hold your nose whenever Clarence and Mercedes are alone in a room together Interesting historically Terrible in reading Boring dull characters You can tell the author has a Secrets of the TEAS® Exam Study Guide lot to say politically and I suppose the characters work as allegory but not for 300 pages I m mostly just relieved it s over Big yikes at the descriptions of African Americans and Native Americans and the emphasis on the whitenessblue eyes of Mercedes I m glad I read it I suppose but I d rather point someone in the direction of a history textbook It would read the same without the clunky bits As a novel The Suatter and the Don is terrible But as a historical document of theiving conditions for California natives during the 1800s the text is eye opening Plus props to Burton for being the first known Mexican American writer I always feel too bad about giving books 1 stars but this one was pretty close to getting only that While the history of the book was interesting the storyline was just awful for me The romance parts made me want to gag I couldn t stand the character of Mercedes It was just overall very hard for me to read this book I had to force myself to finish it and honestly if I didn t have to read this for class I most Rising Above The Influence: A True Story about Alcohol, Drugs, and Recovery likely would have abandoned it half way through Theast hundred pages read ike a soap opera and I m just glad it is over it doesn t even get a proper review from me But it s over on to something else now. Citizenship under the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo in 1848 was by 1860 a subordinated and marginalized national minority.
