The Secret Family of Pancho Villa: An Oral History by Ruben Osorio.
José Doroteo Arango, alias Francisco "Pancho" Villa, emerged during the Mexican Revolution as one of the dominating figures of that tumultuous era. While much has been written on Villa's role in the Revolution, little is known about his origins and the forces that shaped his early childhood development and personality. Based on extensive oral history and personal interviews, Rubén Osorio has uncovered Villa's family lineage and background. This bilingual volume uncovers Villa's secret origins, which may explain his virulent nationalism.
