Lone Star Pasts

lonestarpastsAttempting to define the difference between memory and reality, this book essentially is a collection of essays written to honor the Texas myth while still presenting parallel historical fact.

The writing is scholarly and well documented, but somewhat ponderous and lifeless at times. From in-depth studies covering early Spanish presence to the contemporary political ideals of today, the subject matter is varied and interesting in concept. The topics chosen for elaboration, however, do not all seem to be of universal appeal. For Texas worshippers and historical researchers, this one is for you. —Chuck Lewis
