Overview

This exciting new series gives young readers their first in-depth look at the United States. Each volume provides a colorful, comprehensive portrait of a state's history, people, land, economy, and government. Readers will enjoy the "Fun Facts" sprinkled throughout each book and learn even more about state facts, symbols, and famous people. A chapter on "Things to See and Do" explores each state's unique places and activities. Each title includes a time line, biographies of notable people, informative maps and charts, a glossary, recommended books and Web sites, and an index.

At one time an independent nation, the "Lone Star State" is still as big and independent as ever. Today, Texas, now the second-largest U.S. state, flies its Lone Star state flag with pride. A mixture of its Native American cultures, Spanish missions, Mexican roots, and cowboy traditions, Texas is as rich in history as it is in oil wells. The state of Texas offers large cities and vast cattle ranches, tumbleweeds and armadillos, the Gulf of Mexico, and the NASA space center. Subject to extremes in weather, from hurricanes, to flash floods, to scorching dry summers, Texas takes on big challenges as a part of everyday life.
