Product Description

Review

. . . beautifully-written in creative lyrical language . . . His is a story-telling technique that is enjoyable and easy-to-read.

Lively, vivid, and intensely personal, "Horizontal Yellow" fills a gap in American environmental historiography, which has largely bypassed the plains of Texas and New Mexico. "Horizontal Yellow" is one of the best and most evocative books in the burgeoning literature about place. . . . it succeeds and raises questions as a first-rate contribution to the literature of place, and few know the region as well as Flores. . .

No one makes history come alive better than Dan Flores. . . . "Horizontal Yellow", both scholarly and readable, has a powerful component.

HASH(0x9b2a8f90) out of 5 stars Embrace the Southern Plains through an appreciative lover Jan. 20 2006
By S. J. Snyder - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Dan Flores has lived most of his life in the Horizontal Yellow. Another, more historical term for this land would be the Spanish-Mexican Frontier. Florida was not settled from Mexico, of course, and the settlement of California was decades to more than a century later.

Flores explores this land from both the history and natural history points of view, with the historical part generally beginning with the first Spanish-U.S. contact as part of post-Louisiana Treaty boundary negotiations.

Not all Texas is the Southern spillover of Dallas and Houston; get acquainted with the rest of it, and adjacent areas, in this book.
