Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

A companion to the current exhibition at Houston's Museum of Fine Arts, Texas Flags: 1836-1945, Texas Flags is a lushly illustrated record of the banners that have united and galvanized the citizens of the Lone Star State. From the Virgin of Guadalupe banner of the Mexican independence leader Father Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla to the Lone Star flags of the Republic years and the battle flags of Confederate units, the book documents the unusually rich history of the Texas pennants. The text by curator Robert Mayberry Jr., director of the Historical Flags of Texas Project, offers an engrossing overview of the state's history.

If you like flags, history and Texas this is the book for you. Extremely well written, researched and illustrated. The computer graphics are excellant, the large flag pictures are some of the best that I have seen. A must have for any Texan or flag lover.

I just received this book as a gift through Amazon from a fellow Texas history buff in Austin, TX. I am so interested in the book I am reluctant to put it down.
The information is well researched, a big job for the author. The photos are excellent. The explanation of history of the flags is the story of early Texas. This book is a great addition to your library if you want to know more about Texas history and Texas flags.
