Rolando Hinojosa

Rolando Hinojosa is a major US writer from Texas. See his Biography




He has peopled his novels with more than a thousand and four hundred characters, inhabiting his fictitious Belken county.

This is an index of all the characters appearing in his novels.


Rolando Hinojosa - A Character Index to the Novels



Welcome to Belken County! The novels of Rolando Hinojosa have made this county in South Texas their home, and they have peopled it with roughly one thousand and four hundred more or less fictional characters. These characters (and others they have met or talk about) often appear in more than one novel, and our knowledge of them grows, if we remember them from earlier or later appearances.


In what follows I have tried to compile a complete census of all characters in the novels, whether fictional or not. In case of changing or multiple names, I have added cross-references. As land-holding patterns and kinship networks are very important in Belken County, you will find some families included as a group.


I have tried to be as accurate as possible, and page references are to the editions listed below. If you discover any omissions or mistakes, please write to me, and I will include any amendments into future editions of this census.
