About this title

Synopsis:

Ray Miller's Houston, Second Edition telescopes more than 150 years of Houston history into one captivating and readable account, brimming with photographs, told by the journalist who has followed the city's fortunes since 1939.
From Allen's Landing to Intercontinental Airport and San Jacinto Battleground to the Galleria, this book describes the growth and development that took Houston from cotton, cattle, and oil to spacecraft and computers. Ray Miller skillfully weaves the stories of Santa Anna, Sam Houston, William Marsh Rice, Howard Hughes, Dr. Michael DeBakey, Richard Nixon, Nolan Ryan, and dozens of others into a chronological tapestry depicting the history of a fascinating city. The narrative covers the progress of Houston's industry, politics, art, and medicine, set off with more than 200 black-and-white photos of the city's yesterdays and tomorrows.
An all-new section of color photographs crowns this second edition with vibrant images of an exciting and livable city: Ray Miller's Houston.
