There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Those are small things to be sure, but basic facts like those make you question the accuracy and thoroughness of the research performed before writing the book. Also, as another reviewer has mentioned, the author repeatedly uses words that grammatically make no sense (euphony instead of euphemism is just one of probably five examples I can think of).
The book is a quick read and is filled with basic facts that give the reader a general understanding of the history of Texas, but I suspect there are better texts than this one that accomplish that feat.
