In some ways, this volume 7 in the Ann and F. Lee Lawrence East Texas History Series of site-specific monographs, is a continuation of number 5, San Augustine, A Texas Treasure, also by John and Betty Oglesbee. After completing that assignment successfully, the Oglesbees have extended their interest and historical coverage westward approximately 100 miles along El Camino Real, essentially the modern route of State Highway 21. Again, they visited the sites, absorbed their historical, cultural, and one might say even spiritual manifestations and now pass them on to later travelers who follow in the footsteps made by Father Damien Massanet in 1690, Louis St. Denis in 1714, Sam Houston in 1833—or you, as you visit San Augustine, Nacogdoches, or Crockett. As usual, the Oglesbees provide wonderful illustrations of the scenes they describe.
