    What a Book!

    For anyone wanting to understand what makes Texans think they way they do, well, this book is for you. As a transplanted Texan I wanted to know what has created the Texas attitude and this book answers all my questions. After reading this and many other Michener novels I wish that he was still with us to captivate us as he did in the past

    TEXAS AT IT'S BEST..........

    JAMES MICHENER HAS DONE A WONDERFUL JOB OF BRINGING TEXAS HISTORY TO US IN A VERY COLORFUL AND INTERESTING WAY. THIS IS A BOOK EVERYONE SHOULD READ IF THEY WOULD LIKE TO UNDERSTAND WHAT TEXAS IS ALL ABOUT. THE DIFFERENT FAMILIES AND THEIR STORIES AS SO WELL DEPLICTED THE ONE FEELS THEY ARE LOOKING AT THE EVENTS OF THE PAST FROM ON HIGH. IT IS A LONG BOOK, BUT YOU DON'T NOTICE ITS LENGTH BECAUSE IT IS HARD TO PUT DOWN. THE NEXT THING YOU KNOW YOU A HALF WAY THROUGH IT AND WANTING MORE.

    Classic Michener. I grew up with his novels, and they never cease to amaze me. He is able to capture my attention and hold it until I just have to go do something else. (I would always prefer to read) That's difficult to do for over 1,000 pages...he's a master storyteller!

    Great Historical Fiction

    I loved this book. Received as a gift and took me six months or so to start reading since I was intimidated by the number of pages. Once I started I loved it and it read quick since Michner keeps you interested with this story.
