Typical Michener. A multigenerational traipse through a focused history of a region, a people, a society. Fortunately this is limited to only a history from the 1600's through 20th century Texas, as opposed to, say, his "Alaska", or "Hawaii", hich take us all the way back to prehistoric times. Overall a good read which follows characters and their descendants up to modern times, covering the Spanish in Mexico, the Southern migration, both before and After the Civil War, the influence of cotten, cattle, slavery, oil and water on the development of Texas and it's people. Would recommend it to fans of Michener and history. A similar read would be "Chesapeake" Chesapeake
