If you like Texas History you will wade through this read about the father of Texas. It was written in the 1920's and it is a tough read. I is very well referenced.. Barker was a history prof at the University of Texas. I work in a historical museum in Sugar Land Texas, the same place where Austin got his 5 leagues of land from the Spanish then Mexican governments. This is the place where Texas was founded, the original Austin Colony.

Very interesting book about the life of Stephan F. Austin and his family. It seems to be very detailed and authentic. I have found facts that I was not aware of about the family. It is always interesting to read about how families survived different obstacles that occurred in their lifetimes, but when it happens in an earlier age it puts their lives into perspective along with their hardships. Any one who thinks that they are a descendant of Stephan F. Austin should read this book.

Format: Paperback
Stephen F. Austin was a thoughtful, reflective man who once declared his aim to be to conquer the wilderness of Texas by the axe, the plow, and the hoe. He recognized that such as enterprise, unlike the work of a successful military chieftain, would attract little notice. Thus it was that almost a hundred years had passed since Austin' death when this first full-length biography of Austin was published.

This book is the product of long and painstaking compilation of all pertinant and available materials to be found in the United States and Mexico and is the indispensible authority for the history of the Anglo-American beginning in Texas.

For almost a quarter of a century, dividing his time between editing, teaching, textbook writing, and serving in various academic capacities, Eugene C. Barker pursued the study which resulted in The Life of Stephen F. Austn. His accomplichment has long been regarded as the finest biography in Texas literature.
