Entertaining historical vignettes focus on the human-interest aspects of real people and actual events of frontier Texas. Included are stories about the early colonists, the Indians, the cowboys, the gunslingers, the lawmen, the entrepreneurs, and the statesmen. Subjects such as the conflicts with Mexico, the railroads, the Civil War, and the cattle drives are also included. The vignettes, short and well written in an easily readable style, bring history to life with the humor and drama of the people who settled Texas.
