Using 64 rare historical maps from the Marty and Yana Davis Map Collection at Sul Ross University in Alpine, this lavishly illustrated volume tells the story of Texas through the art and science of cartography. Covering 500 years of history, it offers a beautiful and informative look at the evolution of the Lone Star State from 16th-century Spanish exploration, the Louisiana Purchase and the Texas borderlands, empresario settlement, the Republic of Texas, statehood and the Confederacy, the Mexican wars, and the explosive growth of Texas in the 20th century. The maps are accompanied by 10 essays by noted Texas historians that provide deeper historical context for the culture, art, politics, myths, and realities embodied by the historical maps. Going to Texas: Five Centuries of Texas Maps is an adventure through history that will be treasured by any Texas history lover.
