  • To the Vast and Beautiful Land: Anglo Migration into Spanish Louisiana and
           Texas, 1760s–1820s by Light Townsend Cummins (review)
    • Abstract: Light Townsend Cummins wrote the eleven previously published essays included in To the Vast and Beautiful Land: Anglo Migration into Spanish Louisiana and Texas, 1760s–1820s over the course of a long and distinguished career that helped redefine how historians have interpreted colonial and early national Texas and Louisiana history. In addition to this book, Cummins has written or contributed to some twenty books and given countless lectures on this subject matter. Perhaps owing to his prolific record, there is nothing groundbreaking about the thesis of this volume, "that commerce and land acquisition by Anglo-Americans went hand in hand as dual motivators for the migration of English speakers into Louisiana and ...

  • Native Southerners: Indigenous History from Origins to Removal by Gregory
           D. Smithers (review)
    • Abstract: Employing the voluminous amount of secondary works dealing with southern Native Americans that have been published in the last two decades, Gregory D. Smithers has written a short and accessible overview of the southern Indian experience up to 1840 that will have great value for college students and professors alike. Although the book includes details concerning numerous different Indigenous groups of various languages—Muscogean, Southern Iroquoian, Siouan, and Caddoan—the author has done a fine job in clearly presenting his main theme of Native cultural continuity in times of extreme hardship and change.Smithers defines the Native South as extending eastward from the Louisiana-Texas border to the Atlantic Ocean ...

  • "A Chicken for Breakfast at the Expense of Mr. Rebel": The Journal of
           Sergeant Nelson Howard, Company E, 13th Maine Infantry on the Texas Coast,
           1863–1864
    • Abstract: Portrait of Nelson Howard from the Lewiston, Maine, city hall. Photo courtesy of Rich Eastman.Wading through heavy surf just off the Texas Gulf Coast at sunset on November 16, 1863, men from the 13th Maine Infantry went ashore on Mustang Island. The men were part of a Union army of some 6,998 soldiers who had come from New Orleans in a storm two weeks earlier, landed on Brazos Island, and marched on Brownsville. At ten o'clock on the morning of November 6, as a token Confederate force fled north for the Nueces River, the 94th Illinois Volunteers led the way into the streets of the border town, followed five hours later by a battery of Missouri artillery and the 13th Maine. Reporting his arrival in Texas, the ... Read More

Although this slogan evades precise definition, it does capture something important about the city's collective identity.1 It has long been a haven for the offbeat, and its progressive politics often put it at odds with much of the rest of Texas. While several recent books have challenged the idea that Austin has lived up to its progressive self-image, especially in ... Read More

  • Frontiers of Science: Imperialism and Natural Knowledge in the Gulf South
           Borderlands, 1500–1850 by Cameron B. Strang (review)
    • Abstract: In Frontiers of Science, Cameron Strang creates a new framework for understanding the history of natural knowledge in early North America, which shifts the focus away from imperial centers of power, the Atlantic seaboard, and Anglo Americans. Through a series of case studies, Strang convincingly argues that the diverse Europeans, Creoles, Africans, and Indigenous inhabitants of the Gulf South from Florida to Louisiana were key agents in the development and circulation of natural knowledge that shaped imperial contests for the region. Individuals in this southeast borderland, whether long-standing residents or short-term visitors, valued knowledge, observing and recording information about the region's plants ... Read More

    • Abstract: Ernest O. Thompson. Courtesy of Texas State Library and Archives Commission, 1972/115-368B.Ernest O. Thompson retired from the Texas Railroad Commission (TRC) in 1965 after more than thirty-two years in office. In reporting the event, the Tulsa Daily World called Thompson a "world-recognized oil conservation expert who tamed the wild burst of Texas oil development during the 1930s." The headline for the story identified Thompson as the "Tamer of Texas Oil." The East Texas oil field formed the epicenter of the "wild burst," and it affected the entire nation. A complex and coordinated effort between the national government and oil-producing states eventually established a framework to bring regulation and stability ... Read More

    • Abstract: In 2014, the Contributors Committee of the Community Historical Archeology Projects with Schools agreed to endorse the creation of the Rio Grande Valley Civil War Trail, incorporating sites in Cameron, Hidalgo, Kleberg, Starr, Webb, and Zapata Counties. Combining written descriptions, a website, audio tours, podcasts (in Spanish and English), road signs, a short film, and a tour guide called Blue and Gray on the Rio Grande: The Rio Grande Civil War Trail (Texas A&M University Press, 2018), the project aims to publicize key Civil War sites and museums, promote cultural awareness, and increase heritage tourism. In so doing, it serves as a model for regional public history ventures. Featuring eleven essays by academic ... Read More

  • An East Texas Family's Civil War: The Letters of Nancy and William
           Whatley, May–December 1862 ed. by John T. Whatley (review)
    • Abstract: For many years, historians of the Civil War tended to focus on leaders, battles, and diplomacy. Over the past thirty years, emphasis has shifted to the home front, the role of women, and wartime slavery, among other topics. An East Texas Family's Civil War is an excellent depiction of the Texas home front in microcosm. This book is an edited collection of letters between William Whatley, a Rusk County farmer and soldier in the Seventeenth Texas Cavalry, and his wife, Nancy, over a span of seven months in 1862. The letters have been edited for publication by John T. Whatley, William and Nancy's great-grandson.A salient feature of the Whatley letters is the difficulty Nancy encountered in running the farm, managing ... Read More

  • Confederate Generals in the Trans-Mississippi: Essays on America's Civil

    • Abstract: Neglected by Confederate officials in Richmond, unknown by the public at large, and considered a backwater by historians, the Trans-Mississippi Theater generally gets scant treatment in examinations of the Civil War. Confederate Generals in the Trans-Mississippi: Essays on America's Civil War highlights the region's importance not only to the war but also to the Confederate defeat. This volume, the third and final in a series, follows the same template as the previous two by highlighting prominent Rebel generals in the theater. Some of them, such as Earl Van Dorn, Edmund Kirby Smith, and Richard Taylor, should be familiar even to novice students of the war. Others, such as William Boggs, James Fagan, and John ... Read More

    • Abstract: While certainly not as famous as contemporary luminaries such as Kit Carson, George Armstrong Custer, Wyatt Earp, and William F. Cody, Simpson Everett "Comanche Jack" Stilwell nevertheless played a meaningful role in the exploration and settlement of the Great Plains. "His story is part of the fabric that holds the western frontier together," authors Clint E. Chambers and Paul H. Carlson maintain. "He should not be forgotten" (201).The book's primary aim is to provide a straightforward biography of Jack Stilwell (co-author Clint Chambers's great-great-uncle) and to place his story within the context of western history during the last three decades of the nineteenth century. "Comanche Jack" left little written ... Read More

           Joshua Specht (review)
    • Abstract: Eating animals rests at the core of American selfhood in ways that historians are only beginning to consider, let alone critically examine. In Red Meat Republic, Joshua Specht explores the struggles of beef eaters and beef producers to both democratize and profit from meat-eating in America during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Their efforts ensured beef's central place in America's economy as well as its importance in managing Americans' troubled notions of democracy.In Specht's wide-ranging analysis—which spans the dispossession of the so-called "open range" of the Native American Great Plains, the markets and slaughterhouses of Chicago, the tables of Delmonico's Restaurant in New York City ...

  • The American West and the World: Transnational and Comparative
           Perspectives by Janne Lahti (review)
    • Abstract: It is no secret that transnational history is enjoying a moment. Historical research, as it always has, reflects the concerns of the current age, and we are now increasingly aware of the myriad connections among nations, regions, and peoples. Historians of the American West have, likewise, been examining the region's connections to the larger world. Janne Lahti's The American West and the World does the profession a service by synthesizing recent transnational scholarship on the American West.Lahti's work opens with an introduction and closes with an epilogue, each of which explains his interest in the subject; the body of the book is divided into two sections, "Global Convergences" and "Global Circulations."

  • The End of the Myth: From the Frontier to the Border Wall in the Mind of
           America by Greg Grandin (review)
    • Abstract: In this sweeping book, historian Greg Grandin demonstrates the power, influence, and transformation of the frontier myth in the history of the United States. Writing for a popular audience, Grandin argues that President Trump's border wall signifies the true closing of the frontier, or the "promise of boundlessness" (7), more than one hundred years after Frederick Jackson Turner first declared the frontier closed. Instead of a reckoning with America's imagined limitlessness and its harmful impact on democracy, equity, the environment, and countless human bodies, Trump's acknowledgment of limits embraces domination, targeting those same victims of this once powerful myth.The End of the Myth covers three centuries of ...

He is known for his deep research and rigorous, close analyses. He has tackled a range of artists and printmakers and made substantial contributions to the literature in books and essays that span more than forty years. This collection of eight of his essays, all revised since their first publications and sumptuously produced, covers artists as relatively obscure as Louis Choris and Alfred E. Mathews and as well known as Karl Bodmer, Alfred Jacob Miller, John James Audubon, George Caleb Bingham, and Frederic Remington.Tyler's chapter on Choris opens this collection with ... Read More

  • Eanger Irving Couse: The Life and Times of an American Artist, 1866–1936

    • Abstract: Virginia Couse Leavitt's book is not only a wonderful prism through which to examine the work of Eanger Irving Couse, her grandfather, but it is also an enjoyable literary encounter with a delightful human being, a starving artist with flinty resolve to be considered among the greatest American painters. As Leavitt ably demonstrates, Couse was the right man at the right time in the right place.Neither a rebel nor an intellectual, Couse lived during the ascendance of American art, artists, and newly wealthy collectors. He was primarily interested in the human form, and his talents as a draftsman ensured a precise representation of the subject he painted. William Adolphe Bouguereau became a significant teacher and ... Read More

    • Abstract: So much attention is typically given to the visual design work of architects that it seems unusual to collect their written work, but Kathryn E. O'Rourke has done just that for O'Neil Ford in O'Neil Ford on Architecture. As a historian with an interest in Texas architecture and its preservation, I am pleased with the opportunity the book offers to develop a richer understanding of one of the state's most important twentieth-century architects. These essays and lectures express his innate and learned philosophies of the built and designed environment. They also enhance our appreciation for Ford's lifetime achievements and secure his place as an esteemed design professional.O'Rourke provides a thoughtful organization ... Read More

           (review)
    • Abstract: Most biographies are written about people whose reputations precede them. Miriam Kalman Friedman has undertaken a task of a different order. With Rivers of Light, she introduces readers to an early twentieth-century woman who might have been more at home in our time than her own, a literary mystic and idiosyncratic scholar who left a deep impression on those who knew her. Now we can know her, too.Claire Myers Owens was born in 1896 in Rockdale, Texas, and raised in Temple. From an early age, Owens chafed against her upbringing, defying her parents' expectations on fronts both domestic and intellectual. Though a Texan by birth, Owens defected to the Northeast shortly after graduating from the College of Industrial ... Read More

  • Chicano Communists and the Struggle for Social Justice by Enrique M.

    • Abstract: In Chicano Communists and the Struggle for Social Justice, Enrique M. Buelna examines Mexican American labor activism in Southern California between 1930 and 1970 through the life of Ralph Cuarón. Buelna's biographical subject was a member of the Communist Party USA, an activist in the Congress of Industrial Organizations and other groups, and later a supporter of the Chicano movement. Yet Buelna's work is more than biography. He utilizes Cuarón's life to dissect the complex and at times outsider position Mexican Americans held within the Communist Party (CP), the role the CP played in raising the political consciousness of Mexican Americans—at least in Southern California—and how radical, working-class activism ...

  • Dismembered: Native Disenrollment and the Battle for Human Rights by David
           E. Wilkins and Shelly Hulse Wilkins (review)
    • Abstract: David E. Wilkins and Shelly Hulse Wilkins state that two events in 1996 sparked their awareness of banishment and disenrollment in Native communities. The first was the banishment of George Whitecalf from the Monacan tribe in Virginia, primarily due to a change in political leadership, and the second was the appeals court ruling in Poodry v. Tomawanda Band of Seneca Indians that the federal government could review the banishment of tribal members. Whitecalf's banishment was eventually reversed, and he regained full tribal membership. But the Poodry ruling remained largely ignored by courts who gave preference to an earlier Supreme Court decision favoring the broad powers over tribal membership held by Native ... Read More

  • Pueblo Sovereignty: Indian Land and Water in New Mexico and Texas by
           Malcolm Ebright and Rick Hendricks (review)
    • Abstract: On August 5, 2019, the Yselta del Sur Pueblo in El Paso, Texas, announced that it would donate $100,000 to a fund supporting victims of the August 3 mass shooting in that city. Most Texans, and even many residents of El Paso, were unaware of how much the donation rested on the Yseltans's ability to control their own property. Pueblo Sovereignty explains Yselta origins as well as the centuries of experience that the Pueblos of New Mexico and Texas have had in defending control of their own land, water, and property.Pueblo Sovereignty is a follow-up to Ebright's and Hendricks's magnificent Four Square Leagues, a detailed and comprehensive history of Pueblo land and water rights.

  • Forging Arizona: A History of the Peralta Land Grant and Racial Identity

    • Abstract: James Addison Reavis appeared before the United States Court of Private Claims in 1895 to prove that his fraudulent Peralta Land Grant in southeastern Arizona was actually a legal reality that dated from the Spanish colonial period. In Forging Arizona, Anita Huizar-Hernández argues that the grant's "creation, collapse, and commemoration … is a window into the conditions that produced U.S. westward expansion" (2–3), not to mention into its many consequences. Ultimately, the grant provides Huizar-Hernández a unique way to tell a familiar story: how ideas about race, class, and gender shaped western expansion "and continue to frame the limits of national identity today" (4).More than simply the description of a fraud ...

Wikipedia highlights oil and mineral development, agriculture, lumber milling, and retail as the state's primary economic drivers, while the government actively invites new businesses to New Mexico. Just out of view of these business and travel enticements, federal military investment in the state, and in particular the Manhattan Project and its legacy institutions, definitively shaped New Mexico as it is today.

    • Abstract: David Keller has written an exhaustive study of one of the most remote places in Texas and in the Southwest. While the history of Pinto Canyon and its environs encompasses a vast geological and geographical landscape that has inevitably served to filter out all but the most industrious of settlers, Keller shows how the history and culture of Far West Texas remain inextricably tied to its connection to Mexico. This alone seems to be an especially relevant component of the present-day goings on along the border, and the harsh landscape below the rimrock has truly defined the kind of slow and treacherous development from bold stakeholders. But the history of this area is within arm's reach, and Keller lays this ... Read More
