Incredibly interesting.

This audiobook is fun. I am not a fast listener and learner and I managed to listen to it in two sittings. It's not a history audiobook at all but it is more than historical work.

Guide to the History

I enjoyed listening to this audiobook. It’s like bullet point realities rather of whole chapters of knowledge. It’s a good spark to assist you to venture out for more in-depth research.

Fun with good history information.

I listen to these as fun and do not follow up with Google searches to verify the validity of the facts". So, I found this to be a well-created audiobook that I enjoyed listening for a carefree hobby from the solemnity of life.

Fascinating, balanced history of Texas

The heading, A Captivating Guide to the History of Texas and Texas Rangers” refers to Texas, but it fits for the audiobook itself — all 6 hrs and 27 mins of it — as well. It’s a real hoot of a voice.

Very Informative and also Entertaing

Captivating History and Jason Zenobia has the ability for seeing the smaller narratives inside the larger ones. Big Wonderful Thing covers Texas from pre-Hispanic times into the modern world. a century and comprises the small fibs that bring history to life. It is honest and enjoyable listening.

Already love it and i just got started!

This is a definitive audiobook on the history of the Texas and Texas Rangers. It’s factual, well addressed, and has a surplus of historically relevant ideas. It’s exactly what I was seeking and will serve as an ongoing reference.

Very realistic history- well written

I have visited Austin Texas and got so much from that journey many years ago. This audiobook filled in a lot more knowledge about the state that I didn't know. I found this audiobook to be interesting.

Good Work

Great work, I haven’t made it through it all yet but examined it cover to cover. Details of Texas from the tribes of native people to the present. It is a 6 hrs and 27 mins and heavy audiobook, but well worth the price and effort if you want the narrative of Texas.

Very interesting work.

Thanks to Captivating History, this is a good reference work, however, although the font is a little on the small side, still an exhaustively comprehensive audiobook about Texas.

Interesting suspense thriller

A very good audiobook with consideration to historical detail regarding Texas Rangers. I could not put the audible down and be surprised at the end.
