How does Fishpond Work?

We won't be beaten by anyone. Guaranteed

Spanning four and a half centuries, James A. Michener s monumental saga chronicles the epic history of Texas, from its Spanish roots in the age of the conquistadors to its current reputation as one of America s most affluent, diverse, and provocative states. Among his finely drawn cast of characters, emotional and political alliances are made and broken, as the loyalties established over the course of each turbulent age inevitably collapse under the weight of wealth and industry. With Michener as our guide, Texas is a tale of patriotism and statesmanship, growth and development, violence and betrayal a stunning achievement by a literary master. Praise for Texas Fascinating.
