Description

Zusammenfassung All Texans, or their ancestors, started as something else. The families that came here molded the state and were molded by it. This book explores just how the experiences of 2 of the early Anglo land-grant families - the Robertsons and the Sutherlands - shaped Texas events and how they handed down those experiences from one generation to another.

Texte du rabat

As new generations emerged, each contributed its own anecdotes and historical context from the time period. By placing the families within Texas history, Sutherland effectively and innovatively traces identity from the early nineteenth century to today. As settlers in the western wilderness, the Robertsons, the Sutherlands, and others like them actively shaped Texas, even as they were changed themselves.
