Gone to Texas

A History of the Lone Star State

Third Edition

Randolph B. Campbell

Gone to Texas: A History of the Lone Star State engagingly tells the story of the Lone Star State, from the arrival of humans in the Panhandle more than 10,000 years ago to the opening of the twenty-first century. Focusing on the state's successive waves of immigrants, the book offers an inclusive view of the vast array of Texans who, often in conflict with each other and always in a struggle with the land, created a history and an idea of Texas.

New to this Edition:

  • A thoroughly revised Chapter 19: Texas in the New Millennium, 2001-2016 now includes coverage from 2010 to 2016
  • An expanded discussion of the concept of the "Texas Mystique" in the twenty-first century
  • A revised and expanded select bibliography for every chapter
