The Era of the Missions Texas Lore Volumes 1112 by Patrick
M. Reynolds Here is an
era that is hardly mentioned in American history books because
most of the historians take the English point of view. Consequently,
three-fourths of what is now the United States is overlooked.
Volume Eleven fills that gap by describing the struggle between
the French and Spanish for control over the land west of the
Mississippi. To protect their territory, the Spanish viceroy
in Mexico City sent soldiers and missionaries into Texas to build
missions and presidios. Here is all the action and excitement
of the various expeditions into Texas to win the hearts and minds
of the natives and establish Spanish law, customs, and government.
Volume Twelve covers a wide range of subjects such as the founding
of Fort Worth, the first Englishmen in Texas, how Texas saved
the wine industry in France, Babe Didrickson, the father of the
Texas citrus industry, the first radion broadcast, and much more.
