Love’s Rebirth

A Tejana Story

An unnational territory was born. A mixture of cultures, races, languages, and religions sometimes relating, sometimes segregating, met at that point in time. It could happen anywhere, as history often tells us. Taysha, which means “friend” in the Caddo tongue, was the name given to the territory. It was Tejas to the Tejanos or Texas to the Texians. Our story evolved there in the first half of the nineteenth century.

Somewhere in the southwest part of that vast territory was the ranch Hacienda Quinta del Norte, built by Hidalgo Rodolfo Alfonso González de la Fuente for his family. The most treasured member of his ménage was his granddaughter, Ana Dolores Peregrino González.
