Texas April 2 2012
By graduate student - Published on
Format: Paperback
Perry's conversational style keeps the reader highly entertained as he delves over tons of little-known facts surrounding Texas history in the course of 200 pages. The trivia included sheds light on both Mexican and Tejano perspectives going back hundreds of years.
A perfect read for those of us often intimidated and/or bored by run-of-the-mill history books.
Illuminating & Entertaining March 29 2012

Format: Paperback
Being a 10th-generation Texan and history buff, I picked this book up with interest. I was not disappointed! I learned things I didn't know and read things I did know from a new perspective. Perry's style is witty and much so, it even kept my husband entertained! Highly recommended....
Great read! March 2 2012

Short and Sweet! Jan. 21 2012
By Tomas - Published on
Format: Paperback
The book will help you navigate through the complex and sometimes mytical development of the Lone Star State history. If you are looking for a condensed but comprehensive account of Texas history that will keep you interested throughout, this is the book. Short and sweet!
