6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Randolph G. Crowder on March 22, 2008
Format: Paperback
I read this book with a great deal of interest. As a born (San Antonio) and raised (Austin) Texan, this text really broadened my knowledge base. The maps, though simple, provide insight to many historical issues, especially when combined with their explanations.

To call this book an Atlas, though, is a bit of a misnomer; the maps are line drawings. I guess I was expecting an *atlas* of historical *maps*; my mistake. It's more like a history, with simple maps to illustrate the point.

Despite this, I love the book. It gave me perspective on some points I've been pondering for years. It is now a prized part of my historical atlas collection.

I'll end this review an observation: As a graduate of the University of Texas, I find it somewhat ironic this book was published by the University of Oklahoma Press; UT Press missed out on this one.

Format: Paperback
The practical and informative "Historical Atlas of Texas" is an enjoyable resource for the study of the time-line for exploration, colonization, and development of Texas. I'm happy to have acquired it! I refer to it often in my genealogical research.

An easy read that is precise and to the point; this book is a great supplement to any course of study on Texas, suitable for most age groups. A different map or illustration is found with each turn of the page.

Many readers have wished for maps to be added to the great reference book "Why Stop". Here is the answer, the "Historical Atlas of Texas" is the perfect desktop companion to "Why Stop", a very informative book.

Include the "Historical Atlas of Texas" in your reference library, you will not be disappointed.

Format: Paperback
Authors and Professors A. Ray Stephens and William M. Holmes have authored an outstanding geographical history of Texas. In maps, they have told the history of Texas beginning with the Ancient Native American populations and where they were located, then go down the historical line of the Spanish Expeditions, Texas and Mexican populations, the Texas Revolution, Civl War, etc. to the modern day. In these maps you see the progression of Texas populations, forming of counties, the beginning of major cities and small towns, the shifting of the populations, military forts, and other interesting data up to the present day.
Maps can be very dry and boring however, in this essential guide, the authors have presented the history in an interesting and valuable way. It is easy to read and understand, the maps are not bogged down in unnecessary detail and statistic. It is a book/guide that primary and secondary history or geography classes would enjoy. This is an outstanding geography and history book of Texas that is essential to everyone who is interested in the history of Texas and how the state evolved throughout time. HIGHLY Recommended!
