Illustrated in color and black-and-white by Edwin W. Deming. Howard R. Driggs takes much of the story in this book from personal narratives of pioneers who actually shared the stirring events that gave rise to the state of Texas. Both authors weave into the setting the romance and tragedy of the Conquistadores, and of the bold dreamer, La Salle, as well as memories of old missions, filibusters and privateers, home-building settlers and fighters of the frontier.
