Writer Anthony Head discusses his recent biography, "Spirit: The Life and Art of Jesse Treviño," which offers readers an intimate view of Treviño’s life, from his modest West Side beginnings to the war injury in Vietnam that caused the loss of his right hand.

Through perseverance and strength of character, Treviño trained his left hand to pick up where he left off before the war, becoming one of Texas’ most celebrated artists.
