From the cover: Here is an up-to-the-moment history of the Lone Star state, together with an insiders look at the people, politics, and events that have shaped Texas from the very beginning. Never before has the story been told with more vitality and immediacy. Fehrenbach re-creates the Texas saga from prehistory to the Spanish and French invasions to the heyday of the cotton and cattle empires. He dramatically describes the emergence of Texas as a republic, the vote for secession before the Civil War, and the states readmission to the Union after the War. In the twentieth century oil would emerge as an important economic resource, and the state would experience significant social change. But Texas would remain unmistakably Texas, because Texans have been made different by the crucible of history; they think and act in different ways, according to the history that shaped their hearts and minds.
Good. A pleasant enough reading copy. Light reading creases to the spine. Notably rubbed at the outside edges of the covers and spine. Leans. Top corner of the upper wrapper and first few leaves dog-eared. Text complete, clean and tight.
