In this newest Texas Borderlands study, Jefferson Morgenthaler attempts to present a comprehensive history of La Junta and its people. Located in southwestern Texas around the intersection of the Rio Grande and Rio Conchos, La Junta represents one of the longest continuously populated regions in Texas. Eloquently written and based on a wide variety of primary sources. The River Has Never Divided Us lays out, in thirty chapters, rather a mosaic than a coherent history of this culturally rich region and puts its prime focus on historical developments during the nineteenth century and to a much lesser extent the twentieth century.
