Texas by James Michener. Random House 1985. Hardcover with unclipped dustjacket measuring 9 1/2 x 6 3/8 inches with 1096 pages. Mapped endpages in color.

Historical fiction.

A saga as only Michener can write them. Spanning four and a half centuries beginning in the early 1500's, when the first Spaniards - Cabeza de Vaca and Francisco de Coronado - explore parts of it, and ends with its present day eminence as one of our most powerful states, second only to Alaska in size, second to none in natural wealth and human enterprise.

With a cast of over two hundred, included are actual persons as Sam Houston, Santa Anna, Davy Crockett, Jim Bowie and major events, battles of the Alamo, Goliad, and San Jacinto, statehood, war between the states and its consequences, final victory over the Comanche, only a little over a hundred years ago. This account of how Texas became unique among our states is as exciting as it is informative.

A pre-owned book with use wear. The dustjacket has wear, some tears and chips. The title page has remnants of a label. No writings noted. The cover and pages are intact. A good long read.
