Publisher's Summary

If you want to discover the captivating history of Texas, then keep reading...

Texas is one of the most recognizable states in the United States of America (it is the second-largest, behind Alaska), and it also has a reputation for being unlike any other. This reputation is well-deserved, in part because of the state’s long and often contentious history.

That history has fascinated many people not only in this nation but around the world for centuries. From the heyday of the Wild West and the state’s oil boom to the storied Texas Rangers and the construction of one of NASA’s primary facilities, it seems nearly impossible to fully explore everything in the state’s rich past.

In History of Texas: A Captivating Guide to Texas History, Starting from the Arrival of the Spanish Conquistadors in North America through the Texas Revolution to the Present, you will discover topics such as

  • Before Columbus
  • Early Colonizers - Spain and France
  • Spanish Settlers Claim the Region
  • Americans Settle
  • Rising Tensions between Mexico and the Settlements
  • The Fight for Texas Independence Begins
  • “Remember the Alamo” and Other Major Battles
  • Annexation to the US and the Mexican-American War
  • Role in the Civil War
  • Reconstruction
  • Texas Rangers - One of the Most Illustrious Law Enforcement Agencies
  • Texas Tea - The Texas Oil Boom
  • The Space Race
  • Assassination of JFK
  • Texas Today
  • And much, much more!

Superb History of TEXAS !!!!!

I've been a life long fan of James -- I've been listening to his audible for well over fifty years and counting. And I've listened to all but a few of them. "Texas" was on my bucket list of books to listening .. If you love long, very descriptive,

Fascinating and enlightening historical account.

I grew up in Santa Ana, CA. I was a poor white kid and most of my friends were Mexican American or Black. We got along remarkably well in those days. After completing four years in the US Navy, upon my return, I observed the incipient phase of an influx of illegal foreigners into Southern CA

listening If Renting audible

If you are planning to rent this listening there are a few things that you should know about one of the audible. The first eight pages of Chapter one are missing, this why I reduced one star. I went through the whole audible and those are the only pages that are missing

Quick overview of Texas

This book gives a quick walk-thru of Texas. The more things change the more things stay the same and that’s Texas. Still diverse and independent

Worthless History

This seems like perhaps it was written as a history summary by a junior high school student. And the narrator reads it as such. Save your credits and money and buy something more informative, like a comic book history of Texas. No wonder the writer was ashamed to put his/her name to this!

Compact indeed!!

Compact audible of History. It gives you just enough to see and know and the rest is up to the primer to explore. The perfect tool in creating a 4th grade Texas journal and work for my home

Compact but not lacking

I needed a quick resource for Texas history. This is "compact" but still gets all main points and time periods addressed. It is an easy read which is also really nice.
