Meet the Author


Author Pauline T. Newton's roots run deep in San Antonio's history, as her grandfather, Joseph Idus Lambert, played an important role in the old traditions and folklore of the area. The photographs and postcards in Around San Antonio retrace the Lambert clan's footsteps, revealing places they traveled and lived, including Center Point, Fort Clark, Dripping Springs, Leakey, and Waring, in addition to the city of San Antonio, home to various festivals, schools, historical sites, and military bases. Local ranchers and farmers, as well as old-timers, newcomers, and historians of all ages will enjoy this

pictorial retrospective, which also will offer a brief foray into the history of Texas's families, land, and origins.
