Roger D. Hodge - Texas Blood: Seven Generations Among the Outlaws, Ranchers, Indians, Missionaries, Soldiers, and Smugglers of the Borderlands

Upcoming Event
Monday, October 30, 2017 at 7:00 pm

Hodge is a born and bred Texan who feels deep ambivalence about his home state. Seven generations of Hodges have lived on the borderlands, and Hodge uses his family’s stories to anchor this mesmerizing blend of national and regional history, social criticism, ethnography, travelogue, and lament. What is it about Texas that is so polarizing? As he looks for answers, Hodge, national editor of The Intercept and author of The Mendacity of Hope, gives us vivid evocations of Texas landscapes, chronicles the exploits of European colonists, the travails of Native Americans, reports on more recent border clashes, and channels Cormac McCarthy’s vision of the Lone Star State.
