El Norte (Kobo eBook)

The Hispanic history of the U.S. has been traditionally under-acknowledged or marginalized; indeed, El Norte argues that the United States today owes ever more to its Hispanic heritage than to its Anglo or European past.

Covering more than 500 years, El Norte is a sweeping and dramatic single-volume work of history in the vein of Magnus Magnusson’s Scotland, John Keay’s India, or John Julius Norwich’s A History of France.

Gibson is trained as a journalist, and has written for the Guardian, Vox, and the Observer, among many other outlets. She blends a journalist’s narrative skill with the perspective and insight of a historian, making her book as readable as it is authoritative.

At a time when Trump and immigration controversy have distorted an appreciation for Hispanic influence in America, this book is an invaluable reminder that our Hispanic past is deep and undeniable.

Gibson’s previous book, Empire’s Crossroads, received excellent reviews and solid sales.
