Review quote

"Tracing the colorful history of the nation's second largest state, McComb begins with the earliest inhabitants, the Paleo-Indians, and continues through to Ross Perot and other prominent Texans. McComb's scholarly credentials are impeccable, and his discussion is thorough and balanced.... Quotations, anecdotes, and a lively writing style make this entertaining as well as informative. This title will be one to point out to adults as well as to older children."--Booklist
"A history of Texas from its prehistoric beginnings to the present, combining anecdotes, generalizations, and personality portraits in a pleasing narrative style.... This book will be especially useful to seventh-grade Texas history teachers complying with the new essential elements for that course, but fourth-grade students, high school students, and interested adults will also find much of value in the book. It should definitely be purchased by all school and public libraries."--Southwestern Historical Quarterly "Tracing the colorful history of the nation's second largest state, McComb begins with the earliest inhabitants, the Paleo-Indians, and continues through to Ross Perot and other prominent Texans.
