Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Gave this as a gift and the young man who received it is very pleased as it concerns one of his deep interests, Texas history, and it speaks to his paternal Hispanic roots, too.

Format: Kindle Edition
Authors Donald Eugen Chipman and Harriett Denise Joseph have authored an outstanding book on Spanish Explorers documenting their experiences exploring Texas from the 1500's thru to the 1700's. Not only does this book give the history of Spanish Exploration of Texas but also about the Colonial Spanish Culture in Texas as well as the culture of Native Americans and the Tejano's as well. This book was written and published for secondary junior and senior high students, but also could work well in College Texas history classes as well. The book has the following chapters about the explorers and their observations:
Chapter One: Alvar Nunez Cabeza de Vaca (Ragged Castaway) Chapter Two: Francisco Vazuez de Cornado (Golden Conquistador), Chapter Three: Maria de Agreda (The Lady in Blue), Chapter Four: Alonsa de Leon (Texas Pathfinder), Chapter Five: Domingo Teran de los rios/Fracisco Hidalgo (Angry Governor and Man with a Mission), Chapter Six: Louis St. Denis/Manuela Sanches (Cavalier and His Bride), Chapter Seven: Antonio Margil de Jesus (God's Donkey), Chapter Eight: Marques de San Miguel de Aguayo (Chicken War Redeemer), Chapter Nine: Felipe de Rabago y Teran (Sinful Captain), Chapter Ten: Jose de Escandon y Elguera (Father of South Texas), Chapter Eleven: Athanse de Mezieres (Troubled Indian Agent), Chapter Twelve: Domingo Cabello (Comanche Peacemaker), Chapter Thirteen: Maques de Rubi/Antonio Gil Ibarvo (Harsh Inspector and Father of East Texas), Chapter Fourteen: Bernardo Guitierrez de Lara/Joaquin de Arredondo, Chapter Fifteen: Women in Colonial Texas (Pioneer Settlers), Chapter Sixteen: Women and the Law (Rights and Responsibilities).
In this book you learn about the daring men who explored Texas and the people they encountered in their journey.
