About this title


People and Places In The Texas Past is about the interesting things that usually fall down between the cracks of Texas history. It deals with Theodore Roosevelt's trip to see Jack Abernathy catch wolves with his bare hands; Bigfoot Wallace chasing buffalo down Austin's Congress Avenue; Josiah Wilbarger's living in spite of the loss of his scalp; Fort Worth real estate man Charles Post, Postum, Post Toasties and General Foods; the Houston Ship Channel and other subjects Texan.


People and Places In The Texas Past tells such fascinating stories as: The fastastic Spindletop gusher; the genius of Elisabet Ney; Sam Rayburn's half-century of national leadership; the attempts to steal Moses Austin's remains; Wiley Post of Van Zandt County and the first solo flight around the world; the painted rocks of Concho County; the heroism of Major Horace Carswell, Jr. and many more. -- From the publisher
