This book is about New Mexicans caught up in the land grant struggle that began following the Mexican-American war and which continues to blister to the surface even today. You Can't Push A Rope focuses on the especially turbulent 1960s when activist Reies Tijerina became the internationally known leader of the Hispanic civil rights movement in America.
