(Maury Maverick San Antonio Express News 2001-09-01)

“This is a splendidly written book and I like the writing style.  Adams has researched his topic well and has provided an excellent bibliography.  Along with facts, figures, and historical events, he interjects anecdotes that make the reading lively and interesting.  I strongly recommend the book.  For former students of Texas A&M, it is a must; for historians, it is an excellent history of Texas A&M; and for others, perhaps it will contribute to a better understanding of ‘the spirit that can ne’er be told’ – the spirit of Aggieland.”-East Texas Historical Association

“It is the rare reader who will not be struck by Adam’s extensive research.  The range of sources consulted in the preparation of this study is truly impressive.  And as a former member of the Corps, Adam’s palpable enthusiasm for his subject is one that most current and former cadets will no doubt appreciate.  Current and future alumni of the Corps of Cadets at Texas A&M will definitely welcome this handsomely designed book and assign it a prominent place in their library”-Southwestern Historical Quarterly

(Southwestern Historical Quarterly 2002-07-01)

(Southwestern Historical Quarterly)

“Adam’s provides a detailed institutional history with many interesting anecdotes and stories.

Anyone interested in Texas A&M University will be impressed with this well-researched and attractive book.”-Journal of Southern History
