Abner Cook

Master Builder on the Texas Frontier

By Kenneth Hafertepe

Abner Cook has long been acknowledged as the most important architect in antebellum Texas, but this extensively illustrated volume is the first to document fully his life and works. This well-told history of Cook's life also presents a vivid account of his city--nineteenth-century Austin.
