Descripción

A sequel to Texas Lost. A thoughtful reflection on the forces of history that have shaped Texas and its inhabitants. Signed by both Sansom & Meinzer on the half-title page. Gift plate from Bill Cunnigham, Chancellor of the University of Texas System, and his wife Isabella, with an inscription that reads "Dear Augie: Thank you for all that you do for us and The University. Have a great 1998! Isabella and Bill". Given the context I presume "Augie" is Augie Garrido, the Hall of Fame baseball coach who came to UT in 1996. Also laid in is a card from UT aplogizing for having delivered the holiday gift to an incorrect address. Minimal wear at the edges with the only noticeable defect being a small, light, thumb-nail sized stain on the FFEP. A very good or better copy with a nice UT association.

Sinopsis:

Writer Andrew Sansom and photographer Wyman Meinzer turn their reflection on the forces of history that have shaped the state and its inhabitants. Waves of immigrants have given Texas her uniquely layered heritage, and these words and images capture that marvelous ebb and flow. Cabeza de Vaca walked a completely alien land just a few miles from the transformed coastal prairie where NASA launched Neil Armstrong and other latter-day adventurers toward the moon. An ancient Panhandle quarry of arrowhead flint can be seen as the inventive forerunner of corporate Dow, which launched its industrial empire by extracting magnesium from the brine of the Gulf of Mexico. Spanish missions, the Indian wars, the cattle-ranching barons, Spindletop and the other great oil discoveries - the themes are familiar, but the perspective and insights of this book are amazingly fresh and new. Texas Past is a celebration of titanic struggles and richly intermingled cultures, and its pages voice a rousing call to protect and preserve these tangible treasures for generations of Texas still to come.
