Texas, A Bicentennial History
Joe B. Frantz
W.W. Norton & Co., 1976

 This is the story of how a myth began, with the Texas Revolution against Mexico, cattle drives, and Texas Rangers, and became embodied in larger-than-life figures from Sam Houston to Sam Rayburn, from the explorer La Salle to LBJ. It is also the story of a state larger than its myth, a western state that also is Southern, Mexican, and Spanish in its influence. Residents of any state, whether awed or amused by the Texas image, will find the author's account delightfully refreshing. Inscribed to Richard Yarborough by his father. From the Libraries of Ralph Yarborough's Family
