About this title


Published for the Texas Committee for the Humanities. "The authors of these essays thoughtfully, skillfully, and even provocatively consider the uses of myth in interpreting history - and shaping it.They reflect on particular aspects of the Texas myth: wealth and power, the "good life," the nature of the family, the role of women, the meaning of a wilderness settled then urbanized, the freedom heritage of blacks, the clash of Hispanic with Anglo ways and views."
