5.0 out of 5 stars what a resource for Texas history..., May 25, 2005
This review is from: Gone to Texas: A History of the Lone Star State (Hardcover)
In Randolph B. Campbell's Gone To Texas he discusses every aspect of Texas's society, political nature, economy, etc. He starts out during the first arrival of humans in the area and ends with George W. Bush as governor of the state. The reading is quick and easy, passing from one topic to the next with ease. It does not feel like you are reading a textbook. It feels as if you are reading an intriguing tale about the people and events that affected the growth of Texas into what it is today.

It is impressive in its scope and depth. Only reading through it once, I have learned a vast amount about Texas's fight for independence from Mexico, the role Texans had in the numerous United States wars, the political atmosphere of Texas (being mainly a one party state) after the Civil War, and the many political and non-political figures that shaped the personality of the state. Anything you need to know about Texas is in this book and I would highly recommend it to Texas enthusiasts and history buffs. Everyone enjoy!
