Historical Atlas of TexasBook - 1989
Texas, a land with a unique image, has remained for the most part within the American mainstream. In this historical atlas sixty-four maps, accompanied by brief interpretive essays, illustrate the most significant events and subject areas in Texas history and geography.
Since the arrival of the first Europeans in 1528, six different nations have claimed sovereignty over the Lone Star state’s diverse regions. Readers and scholars at all levels will enjoy learning from this atlas how Texas’s native inhabitants and later arrivals responded to each other and to the state’s varied terrain.
