From the Back Cover --

Harlingen's history has been shaped by people and events that are fading from memory. At the Crossroads brings those days to life again. The pioneer ranching families and landseeking farmers, the barbers and midwives, World War II aerial gunners and shopkeepers and so many more - all traveled here to the crossroads. The remarkable photographs selected to tell Harlingen's story recall the men and women who helped the community to grow and prosper. Here are the floods, freezes, and football heroes that brought Harlingen together in disaster and triumphs, in good times and bad.
