A narrative summary of Texas history to 1865, this text deals with Spanish, Mexican and Anglo periods and covers the background to the Texas Revolution, its independence and eventual annexation. Although the political aspect of the state's history is emphasized, the social and economic influences are not neglected. This textbook is suitable for use at either the junior college or senior university level where a course in Texas history is offered. It provides a good supplement to the lecture-classroom approach to instruction.
