A valuable work on the Republic of Texas!” (Jenkins)

 

History of Texas” by A.B. Lawrence is a fascinating and important history of Texas and Native American Indian tribes in Texas – including the Comanche tribes! While, it offers descriptions of the climate, buffalo hunting, trade and economy, and industry, the draw of this work is the relevance to early Texas and early American migration.

 

According to Streeter, this important book on Texas includes

“Extracts from a Journal’ of a twelve-day journey from Houston to the new capital at Austin. Following the Journal are a few chapters giving conventional accounts of boundaries, rivers, climate, the products of the soil and so on. Concludes with interesting chapters on religions in Texas, the social life of the country, advantages of Texas for emigrants, especially for farmers, and directions for bringing in families and household goods.”

 

It should be noted that this 1844 book includes one of the very earliest illustrated views of the city of Austin, Texas!
