How to Use This Book
Chapter One ; The Land 
From mile-high mountains to sandy shores, dry-as-a-bone desert to soggy swamps, Texas has everything 
from the basic to the bizarre.
Chapter Two ; The First Texans 
From the first time humans set foot on Texas land, native peoples hunted, fished, farmed, and thrived. 
Chapter Three ; Explorers and Settlements 
First came the Spanish, but foreign settlers in Texas also include the French and even Americans.
Chapter Four ; Growth and Change 
From an independent country to joining the United States to seceding during the Civil War, Texas has seen 
its share of changes.
Chapter Five ; More Modern Times 
Texans have had their share of good and bad, from the Great Depression to the Dust Bowl to World War II.
Chapter Six ; People 
Texas chili, Mariachi bands, and Friday night football are only some of the things that keep Texans 
smiling.
Chapter Seven ; Government 
Learn all about Texas lawmakers and the strange laws the state has on its books.
Chapter Eight ; Economy 
Three products built Texas into an economic empire: cotton, cattle, and oil, yet today's economy also

Chapter Nine ; Travel Guide 
Listen to the whoop of an endangered species, the rattle of some definitely dangerous snakes, or the snort 
of an unhappy bull at a rodeo; that's Texas.
