Gone to Texas

A History of the Lone Star State

Second Edition

Randolph B. "Mike" Campbell

Gone to Texas 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:

  • Chapter 19 covers the years from 2001 to 2011
  • Chapter 20 expands on the concept of the "Texas Mystique" into the twenty-first century
  • Revised and updated chapters include the latest scholarship on American Indians, particularly the Comanches
  • A revised and extended select bibliography for every chapter
