Synopsis:

This is not your grandfather’s history of Texas. Portraying nineteenth-century Texas as a cauldron of racist violence, Gary Clayton Anderson shows that the ethnic warfare dominating the Texas frontier can best be described as ethnic cleansing.

The Conquest of Texas is the story of the struggle between Anglos and Indians for land. Anderson tells how Scotch-Irish settlers clashed with farming tribes and then challenged the Comanches and Kiowas for their hunting grounds. Next, the decade-long conflict with Mexico merged with war against Indians. For fifty years Texas remained in a virtual state of war.

Piercing the very heart of Lone Star mythology, Anderson tells how the Texas government encouraged the Texas Rangers to annihilate Indian villages, including women and children. This policy of terror succeeded: by the 1870s, Indians had been driven from central and western Texas.

By confronting head-on the romanticized version of Texas history that made heroes out of Houston, Lamar, and Baylor, Anderson helps us understand that the history of the Lone Star state is darker and more complex than the mythmakers allowed.

Book Description University of Oklahoma Press, Norman, OK, 2005. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. Photos & Illustrations (illustrator). First Edition. x, 494 pp, quarterbound w/red boards w/red cloth covered spine w/gilt lettering, glossy dark red-black dj w/orange-red-white lettering. The book explores the race relations during the Mexican Republic, the Republic of Texas and early statehood. The author exposes the ethnic warfare that dominated the frontier. The struggle between Anglos and Indians for land. He tells how Scotch-Irish settlers clashed with Wichitas, Caddos, and other farming tribes and then challenged the Comanches and Kiowas for their hunting grounds. He tells how the Texas government encouraged the Rangers to annihilate INdian villages, including women and children, spreading terror so that the survivors and neighboring Native groups would want to leave. The policy succeeded: by the 1870s, Indians had been driven form central and western Texas. Bookseller Inventory # 040893
