The Story of Texas

John Edward Weems
Compiled by Ron Stone
Illustrations by Tom Jones

Children of all ages will enjoy this colorful, instructive book on Texas history. Told in simple language, the story emphasizes the drama and excitement of the state’s history – from prehistoric times, when Texas was largely underwater and inhabited by strange creatures, to the modern age of space travel and computers.
The text is amply illustrated by lively sketches and paintings that will make reading about history fun.

JOHN EDWARD WEEMS was a freelance writer, and the author of ten books, including A Weekend in September.
