Big Wonderful Thing: A History of Texas
Blending action and atmosphere with impeccable research, New York Times best-selling author of The Gates of the Alamo, Stephen Harrigan, brings to life with novelistic immediacy the generations of driven men and women who shaped Texas. Harrigan presents Spanish explorers, American filibusters, Comanche warriors, wildcatters, Tejano activists, and spellbinding artists-all of them taking their part in the creation of a place that became not just a nation, not just a state, but an indelible idea.
