Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I bought this book to read as background information for a small historical research project and found it to be quite enjoyable. It weaves the historical and cultural narratives of Texas together with the development of her laws. It is fascinating indeed to see how these factions impacted each other to shape the course of legal history in Texas.
The writing is not as scholarly as I needed it to be and did not go into enough detail to suite my purposes. Never the less, I recommend it as an introduction to the subject, heavy on the cultural context.
My only complaint is that the print is kind of small! I should have gotten it on Kindle!

All Texans would enjoy this . All history teachers would glean how law came to help civilize the larger territory. The Story of law in Texas has a touch of real people. It is a journey when you take time to read the MANY FOOTNOTES.
Well done !
