9780199779406: Gone to Texas: A History of the Lone Star State

Gone to Texas engagingly tells the story of the Lone Star State, from the arrival of humans in the Panhandle more than 10,000 years ago to the opening of the twenty-first century. Focusing on the state's successive waves of immigrants, the book offers an inclusive view of the vast array of Texans who, often in conflict with each other and always in a struggle with the land, created a history and an idea of Texas.

Review:


"The best, most comprehensive account of the Lone Star saga that I know of; the place to start if you prefer Texas history to Texas mythology."---Fritz Lanham, Houston Chronicle


"The new standard history of America's most unusual state. It is a balanced account, beautifully written, with verve and wit."--William H. Goetzmann, The University of Texas at Austin


"One of the best crafted, thoroughly researched, and masterfully presented histories in one volume ever written about this state. It is nothing short of an historical tour de force."--Light T. Cummins, Austin College
