Texas History Resources

Here are some books about Texas history we have enjoyed, most of which we picked up here and there for little money:

The Story of Texas by George Sessions Perry
Texas: The Land of the Tejas by Siddie Joe Johnson
Sketches from the Five States of Texas by A. C. Greene
Johnny Texas by Carol Hoff
Johnny Texas on the San Antonio Road by Carol Hoff
Remember the Alamo by Robert Penn Warren
The Boy in the Alamo by Margaret Cousins
Call of the Southwest: Stories for Young Texans by J. A. Rickard


  1. We just finished "Stephen F. Austin - Wilderness Pioneer" by Carol Hoff. It was very good.
    We are planning to read "Make Way for Sam Houston" by Jean Fritz next.

  2. I'm looking for living books about the cattle drives and the oil boom. No luck yet.
