Topic and Directions: Use With His Pistol in His Hand to write a 3 page essay on one of the topics below. Your paper should include a brief introduction, body of your essay, and brief conclusion. Be sure to include a clear statement of your thesis (main argument) and sufficient evidence (2-3 examples) to support your claim. Do not simply summarize With His Pistol in His Hand. If you include quotes, be sure to place the author and page number in parenthesis after the quote.

WITH HIS PISTOL IN HIS HAND: Americo Paredes’ With His Pistol in His Hand is about how the life and experiences of one man, Gregorio Cortez, came to be the legendary source of a famous corrido (ballad) and captured the imagination of Anglos and Mexicans in early 20th century Texas. In your view, what was the main reason Cortez, his encounter with the law, and his subsequent run for the border garnered so much attention? Why did Anglos and Mexicans find his story compelling? Do you think Cortez posed a threat to Anglo power in the border region and/or empowered Mexicans in Texas to challenge Anglo power? If so, how? If you choose to answer this question, be sure to discuss both the story of Cortez AND the corrido about him.
