Gone to Texas Book Summary/Review:

Enid E. Haag Author of From Europe to Texas and Peggys Wartime Memories In April 1906, ten-year-old Emma finds herself thrust into the reality of a terrible natural disaster, the great San Francisco earthquake. Alone and frightened, a Good Samaritan, opera singer Enrico Caruso, takes her under his wing. After a disheartening search for her mom, dad, and older brother, shes reunited with her uncle in New Mexico. Traumatized and plagued by panic attacks following the earthquake, Emma slowly recovers with the love of her Spanish Converso aunt and German uncle. Misadventures abound as fear grips her during sandstorms or shaking of buildings. Her persistent conviction that Papa will return keeps her spirits positive. A court order catapults a more grown up Emma into living in Texas with a resentful aunt, disinterested uncle, and a bullying cousin. Family secrets, plus cultural and religious prejudices, hinder any harmony that might develop. Only her grandmother welcomes her into the traditional German family in New Braunfels, Texas. When an invitation arrives from Caruso to attend one of his concerts in Corsicana, Texas, Emma learns some of the familys secrets, giving her deeper insight into the various family disputes. She never loses hope she will be reunited with her Papa.

Astrid sat at the table, cradling a pint in her hand. Unfortunately, it was only half-full since the rest of it dripped from the bloke’s head opposite her. A gang of four lurked behind him. They glared at her as the sounds of sirens shot through her head. She thought her internal jukebox had kicked into automatic for one second and she was listening to The Clash or The Beastie Boys. Then she realised it came from outside and

In Gone to Texas, historian Randolph Campbell ranges from the first arrival of humans in the Panhandle some 10,000 years ago to the dawn of the twenty-first century, offering an interpretive account of the land, the successive waves of people who have gone to Texas, and the conflicts that have made Texas as much a metaphor as a place. Campbell presents the epic tales of Texas history in a new light, offering revisionist history in the best sense--broadening and deepening the

During the 1960s and 1970s, Texas was rocked by a series of political transitions. Despite its century-long heritage of solidly Democratic politics, the state became a Republican stronghold virtually overnight, and by 1980 it was known as “Reagan Country.” Ultimately, Republicans dominated the Texas political landscape, holding all twenty-seven of its elected offices and carrying former governor George W. Bush to his second term as president with more than 61 percent of the Texas vote. Sean P. Cunningham examines the remarkable history

The historical record of the Rio Grande valley through much of the nineteenth century reveals well-documented violence fueled by racial hatred, national rivalries, lack of governmental authority, competition for resources, and an international border that offered refuge to lawless men. Less noted is the region’s other everyday reality, one based on coexistence and cooperation among Mexicans, Anglo-Americans, and the Native Americans, African Americans, and Europeans who also inhabited the borderlands.

In a state assumed to have a constitutionally weak governor, the Speaker of the Texas House wields enormous power, with the ability to almost single-handedly dictate the legislative agenda. The House Will Come to Order charts the evolution of the Speaker's role from a relatively obscure office to one of the most powerful in the state. This fascinating account, drawn from the Briscoe Center's oral history project on the former Speakers, is the story of transition, modernization, and power struggles.
