Anna K. Sargent

Author Anna K. Sargentabout this book: At the heart of The Legend of Juan Miguel is the story of a rich Tejano (Texas rancher) driven to retrieve his lost love, his birthright, and his family's fortune triggered by his love for the wife of an Anglo rancher who is his father's sworn enemy. Through it all, Juan Miguel has many identities and personas all the while mystified as he struggles to understand them.

During Texas's border conflicts with Mexico, the newly arrived Anglo ranchers and the venerable Spanish families who had been in Texas for decades clash violently as they compete for land and resources. When Anglo rancher Ben Barone realizes his wife, Margaret, and Juan Miguel are in love, he seeks revenge by confiscating Juan Miguel's rancho, kidnapping him, and rigging his trial for horse thievery in Mexico.

It all happens at a time when the West was emerging and Texas mythology was being written. The Legend of Juan Miguel provides a fresh look at this exciting time in Texas history while taking the reader on a wild ride through truth and illusion, cultural and economic struggles, and bids for fame and fortune.
