  • A Man Absolutely Sure of Himself: Texan George Washington Littlefield by
           David B. Gracy II (review)
    • Abstract: Texas has had its share of larger-than-life figures, men and women who have captured the state and national imagination and become more legendary after their deaths than they were when they lived. George Washington Littlefield may not be as well-known as Sam Houston, but he certainly fits into that category. He lived when Texas was in transition from an isolated frontier to a modern state, and Littlefield personified that change. Through his life he navigated commercial ventures from agriculture to finance and real estate. Along the way, he offered public service, notably as an influential regent and benefactor of the University of Texas. David Gracy’s title, A Man Absolutely Sure of Himself, is an accurate ...

  • Texas Ranger Lee Hall: From the Red River to the Rio Grande by Chuck
           Parsons (review)
    • Abstract: Captain Lee Hall is enshrined in the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame, but frontier historian Chuck Parsons asks why in his latest biographical study, Texas Ranger Lee Hall. A North Carolina native, and the son of a prominent physician, Hall fled Reconstruction for the allure of adventure in Texas. Over his lifetime he had been a teacher, a deputy sheriff, Sergeant of Arms in the Texas House, an Indian agent, and a U.S. Army infantry officer during the Philippine war. His fame, however, rested on his four-year stint in the Frontier Battalion (Texas Rangers).Frontier personalities, people of action rather than people of letters, create a significant obstacle for their biographers. Parsons, for example, never found papers ... Read More

  • Wrecked Lives and Lost Souls: Joe Lynch Davis and the Last of the Oklahoma
           Outlaws by Jerry Thompson (review)
    • Abstract: Every historian would love to stumble across a collection of family memorabilia that reveals intriguing ancestors and events. Even better if the ancestor is Oklahoma’s version of Jesse James and the event in question rivals Wyoming’s Johnson County War. Fortunately for Jerry Thompson, Regents Professor of History at Texas A&M International University, his mother, born Jo Lee Davis, squirreled away seventeen letters that later introduced him to his grandfather, Joe Lynch Davis, cattle rustler, train and bank robber, and central player in a bloody range war from 1911 to 1912. Wrecked Lives and Lost Souls successfully recreates Davis’s life and places it within the tumultuous history of Indian Territory and ... Read More

  • Outriders: Rodeo at the Fringes of the American West by Rebecca Scofield
           (review)
    • Abstract: This book examines the American popular cultural form of rodeo from roughly 1900 through the 1990s, but is not a traditional history of the industry. Instead, Outriders analyzes rodeo from its edges. An American history and gender studies professor at the University of Idaho, Rebecca Scofield relies on extensive archival records that document performances, organizational records, and media narratives to examine rodeo’s vexed relationships of exclusion and belonging.Scofield highlights the double bind at the center of the book with her use of the term “outriders.” Historically, the term refers to riders at the literal margins of a cattle drive who contained and enforced its boundaries. In applying this metaphor to ... Read More

  • Delivered by Midwives: African American Midwifery in the Twentieth-Century
           South by Jenny Luke (review)
    • Abstract: Jenny Luke’s Delivered by Midwives is a significant addition to the literature on this subject and on midwifery in general. Although a slim book, it provides an excellent history of midwifery in the South from the days of the “granny midwife” to the expansion of nurse midwifery in the United States. It is also a recommendation for how to improve maternal health care in the United States. Luke begins with definitions of the “macro” and “micro” elements of health care: macro elements involve medical professionals, scientific medicine, hospitals, and state and federal regulations, while micro elements are community-based, culturally sensitive, and holistic. Luke then demonstrates how both are necessary and depicts ... Read More

  • “Our Local Board of Health Asserts that No Epidemic of Any Kind Exists
           in San Antonio”: State vs. Local Expertise in the 1903 Yellow Fever
           Quarantine
    • Abstract: This editorial cartoon appeared on November 19, 1903, in the San Antonio Daily Light following the lifting of the yellow fever quarantine. The image depicts the triumph of the anti-quarantine advocates, led by the Light, over the San Antonio Daily Express (commonly referred to as The Old Lady by the Light), a perceived supporter of the yellow fever diagnosis and the quarantine.On Saturday, October 17, 1903, thousands gathered as Texas Governor Samuel W. T. Lanham formally opened San Antonio’s annual International Exposition Fair. Since its inception, the fair had proven to be a significant event for the city, as it attracted thousands of visitors. San Antonio officials and merchants expected 1903’s attendance to ... Read More

  • The Catholic Church in the Diocese of Galveston-Houston and Desegregation,
           1945–1984
    • Abstract: Opened in 1929, Our Mother of Mercy in Frenchtown was Houston’s first Creole of color church. Source: Wikimedia Commons, <https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:OurMotherofMercyChurchHouston.JPG> [Accessed March 26, 2020].Born in Houston in 1943, Madeline E. Johnson, a member of St. Nicholas, an African American Catholic church founded in Houston’s Third Ward in 1887, recalled that in her youth she and a cousin once attended Mass at Our Mother of Mercy, a Creole of color church in the Fifth Ward. To her shock and surprise, an usher pushed her and her cousin aside at the altar rail until the last Creole had received communion. Many Creoles of color, who had a mix of French and African (and sometimes Spanish and ... Read More

    • Abstract: Main Street fire of September 12, 1902, Sonora, looking east. Ruffini’s Sutton County Courthouse stands at the far end of the street. Photographer unknown. Courtesy of Sutton County Historical Society.In the predawn hours of September 12, 1902, a fire began in the storerooms of the Mayfield Mercantile Company, at the head of Main Street in Sonora, Texas. Around 5:30 am, the first alarm sounded, but the fire, probably the result of a kerosene lamp left burning overnight, was already growing fast. A strong north wind abetted the flames, and coal oil tanks within the store exploded, knocking volunteer firemen off their feet and blowing out windows in most of the adjacent buildings, including the Sutton County ...

  • The Gulf of Mexico: A Maritime History by John S. Sledge (review)
    • Abstract: The Gulf of Mexico, the earth’s tenth largest body of water, laps the coast of the southern United States and connects it to Central and South America. As such, the Gulf represents an important nexus where people, empires, and trade intersect to define modern geopolitical boundaries. John Sledge’s maritime history of the Gulf provides us with a broad survey of the Gulf’s importance to human history. By exploring how people, ships, and cities have interacted and developed, he has offered a well-written and riveting history that foretells the continuing importance of the Gulf of Mexico.Beginning with the Gulf’s pre-history, Sledge details the rich Native American, Spanish, French, English, American, and Confederate ...

    • Abstract: In 2015, the University of Texas Press announced an ambitious publishing project entitled the Texas Bookshelf, which would begin with a new overview of the Lone Star State’s history and continue with thirteen other volumes covering key subjects such as politics, business, music, and sports. Big Wonderful Thing, a title taken from artist Georgia O’Keeffe’s first reaction to seeing Texas, launches the series in the highly readable fashion that those familiar with Stephen Harrigan’s work as a journalist, essayist, and novelist would expect.The book is huge, but it deals with a huge subject—the story of Texas from its prehistory until the first decades of the twenty-first century. Harrigan intends to be inclusive of ... Read More

  • The Art of Texas: 250 Years ed. by Ron Tyler (review)
    • Abstract: The esteemed historian and editor Ron Tyler has never been one to shy away from Texas-sized scholarly challenges, so it should come as no surprise that he tackled a subject as diverse, complex, and monumental as 250 years of Texas art. A joint project of the Center for Texas Studies at Texas Christian University and TCU Press, The Art of Texas likely is, as the dust jacket asserts, “the first attempt to analyze and characterize Texas art on such a grand scale.” It originated to accompany a major 2019 exhibition spanning several centuries of Texas art, which Tyler had proposed be hosted by the Witte Museum in San Antonio. The Witte was a logical venue, given its long commitment to the subject under the guidance of ... Read More

  • Making a Hand: The Art of H. D. Bugbee by Michael R. Grauer (review)
    • Abstract: The parallels between Harold Dow Bugbee and the great western artist Charles M. Russell, thirty-six years his senior, are striking and instructive in understanding Bugbee and his work. Both were born into upper-middle-class merchant families, had kin who were genuine westerners, went west as teenagers hoping to become cowboys, lived in relative isolation on a new frontier, and were largely self-taught. The authenticity of their work, even at a young age, caught the attention of cattlemen, and each was called a “cowboy artist” by his twenties. Both liked stories of the Old West and produced dozens of pen-and-ink sketches to illustrate them for many books and magazines. Michael Grauer, who was the Curator of Art at ... Read More

  • Photographing Texas: The Swartz Brothers, 1880–1918 by Richard F.
           Selcer (review)
    • Abstract: One of the most iconic photographs in American history was taken of the outlaw gang the Wild Bunch in Fort Worth in 1900. Harry Longabaugh, known as the Sundance Kid, and Robert Parker, better known as Butch Cassidy, smile at the camera, unaware that this picture, quickly distributed by the Pinkerton Agency, would soon cause their downfall. The portrait was taken in the studio of John Swartz, who, along with his brothers David and Charles, shot thousands of photographs of people, places, and events in the Fort Worth area in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Prolific Fort Worth historian Richard Selcer has now produced Photographing Texas, a beautiful, well-researched book focusing on hundreds of ... Read More

  • The Intimate Frontier: Friendship and Civil Society in Northern New Spain
           by Ignacio Martínez (review)
    • Abstract: Scholars of the Spanish Borderlands have long used societal relationships to analyze public behavior in New Spain. These relationships could be built on blood kinship or the powerful godparent/godchild relationship. Spaniards also had to abide by a strict code of honor in their public activities. Ignacio Martínez seeks to reframe these male relationships as friendships. He does not include female friendships and public actions. The first chapter is an intellectual history of male friendships in the classical Mediterranean world, beginning with the Epic of Gilgamesh. Martínez then uses the Las Siete Partidas, a never-adopted law code sponsored (not written) by the Spanish king Alphonso X to show how male friendships ... Read More

  • Nación Genízara: Ethnogenesis, Place, and Identity in New Mexico ed. by
           Moises Gonzales and Enrique R. Lamadrid (review)
    • Abstract: Nación Genízara is a compendium of essays on the Genízaro phenomenon and sheds much-needed light on one of the most fascinating and complex cultural themes in New Mexico history. A myriad of authors, including scholars, enthusiasts, and avocational historians, address the many questions about the detribalized Indians called Genízaros that have arisen over time.Constructed in the early 1700s, the term was applied to uniquely New Mexican people at the bottom of the frontier caste system that Spaniards devised to attempt to control the diverse peoples of the Spanish empire. No longer members of the tribes of their origins, and yet not completely Hispano, Genízaros occupied a cultural no man’s land wherein they were ... Read More

  • The Gods of Indian Country: Religion and the Struggle for the American
           West by Jennifer Graber (review)
    • Abstract: Jennifer Graber writes about the role of religion in telling the nineteenth-century story of the Kiowa nation as it faced westward-expanding European Americans after the Louisiana Purchase of 1803. She chose to focus on the Kiowas because they left a documentary record regarding their religious commitments. They were also broadly representative of the western plains, having migrated from the northern plains—where they learned the Sun Dance ritual from the Crow nation— and found their permanent home on the southern plains—where they formed a primary alliance with the Comanche nation and also allied with the Southern Cheyenne and Arapaho nations.Graber is to be commended for her unstinting effort to tell the truth on ...

  • Frontiers in the Gilded Age: Adventure, Capitalism, and Dispossession from
           Southern Africa to the U.S–Mexican Borderlands, 1880–1917 by Andrew
           Offenburger (review)
    • Abstract: In Frontiers in the Gilded Age, Andrew Offenburger has placed the concept of borderlands into a global framework by exploring the connections among the American West, the Mexican North, and South Africa. He argues that the three regions “shared a unique kind of frontier history,” which was informed by Social Darwinism and involved “economic aggression and resource extraction” (2). His subjects move among the United States, South Africa, and Mexico because “frontier ideology based on capitalist development and a masculine sense of the American West made these far-flung regions interchangeable to those who sought them” (47). Indigenous people, whose lives were upended by capitalist development, resisted ... Read More

  • Postcards from the Chihuahua Border: Revisiting a Pictorial Past,
           1900s–1950s by Daniel D. Arreola (review)
    • Abstract: Drawing upon an unlikely source, author Daniel D. Arreola presents a model for how postcards can teach historians to read the landscape and find broader historical trends there. Postcards from the Chihuahua Border is a work of both geography and history and visually reconstructs the Chihuahua border towns of Ciudad Juárez, Ojinaga, and Palomas. Arreola asserts that postcards are markers of change over time because they offer a “serial view of place” (29). With the exception of Paul Vanderwood and Frank Samponaro in Border Fury: A Picture Postcard Record of Mexico’s Revolution and U.S. War Preparedness, 1910–1917 (University of New Mexico Press, 1988), Arreola believes that scholars have overlooked postcards as both ...

  • Fanáticos, Exiles, and Spies: Revolutionary Failures on the US–Mexico
           Border, 1923–1930 by Julian F. Dodson (review)
    • Abstract: To historians of Mexico, it is increasingly clear that the 1920s were a time of political conflict and competition. While the events of that decade paled in comparison to the turmoil and bloodshed of the Mexican Revolution ten years earlier, they nevertheless included political assassinations, multiple military uprisings, and a massive church-state conflict. Moreover, many of these events spilled into the U.S.–Mexico border region as political dissidents were forced into exile.Julian F. Dodson’s Fanáticos, Exiles, and Spies does much to clarify and elucidate the politics of this period. Dodson provides a detailed overview of the activities and relationships of a group of exiles he calls the revolution’s “losers,” ... Read More

  • Border Land, Border Water: A History of Construction on the US–Mexico
           Divide by C. J. Alvarez (review)
    • Abstract: The border between the United States and Mexico has been extensively researched over the past fifty years, but C. J. Alvarez is the first scholar to successfully combine two seemingly discrete fields of inquiry: the history of border surveillance and the history of hydraulic engineering. He accomplishes this task largely by showing that two distinct federal agencies—the U.S. Border Patrol (the chief enforcement arm of U.S. Customs and Border Protection within the Department of Homeland Security) and the U.S. branch of the International Boundary and Water Commission (IBWC, a binational U.S.–Mexico organization formed in 1889 to oversee border-related issues)—have long been working in tandem to accomplish their ...

  • Two Suns of the Southwest: Lyndon Johnson, Barry Goldwater, and the 1964
           Battle Between Liberalism and Conservatism by Nancy Beck Young (review)
    • Abstract: Nancy Beck Young began the research for this book in 2013. Since then, Donald Trump was elected president in 2016, and Young observes in her preface that there were “intriguing” similarities between the elections of 1964 and 2016. In both, the Democratic candidates—Lyndon Johnson and Hillary Rodham Clinton—represented safe, status quo choices while Barry Goldwater and Donald Trump were both portrayed by Democrats and Republican centrists (Rockefeller Republicans in 1964 and Never Trump Republicans in 2016) as extremists. In the end, Goldwater was trounced, except in his home state of Arizona and in the five southern states of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, and South Carolina. He lost both the Electoral ...

  • The King of Adobe: Reies López Tijerina, Lost Prophet of the Chicano
           Movement by Lorena Oropeza (review)
    • Abstract: The last time I saw Reies López Tijerina was at a Chicano studies conference in the 1980s. He walked silently and unnoticed through the book exhibits, looking fragile and less imposing than he used to. Many young scholars were oblivious to the fact that a legend was among them. Ten years earlier, the first time I met him, he had been an imposing figure, commanding attention whether he spoke to a full auditorium or to students who sat literally at his feet while he discussed themes, such as Chicanos being part of the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel, more commonly heard at a religious revival than a political discussion. Even those, however, had sounded like a political rallying cry against an unfair system.Tijerina was ... Read More

  • The Meanest Man in Congress: Jack Brooks and the Making of an American
           Century by Timothy McNulty and Brendan McNulty (review)
    • Abstract: The Meanest Man in Congress tells an important story about a former member of Congress most Americans will not remember, Jack Brooks. Brooks hailed from Southeast Texas and was educated at Lamar Junior College and the University of Texas, where he earned a B.A. in journalism and a law degree. He served in the U.S. Marine Corps during World War II. In 1952, after brief terms in the Texas legislature, he won a seat in the U.S. Congress, where he served until 1995, losing to a conservative Republican challenger in 1994. Several factors explain his defeat, and they also speak to why scholars should care about his career: first, Brooks was an old-school liberal Democrat who both supported civil rights and elimination of ...
