Book review

This award-winning volume continues the story of Texas through the 20th century. Although no longer a Republic, Texans continued making choices shaping the United States and the world. The early reports by government experts of how no oil would be found in Texas proved false as Texas became the energy capitol of the world. Texans shook the world in the realm of international policy through Colonel House, race relations through James Farmer and Jack Johnson, politics through Lyndon Baines Johnson (known as LBJ) George W. Bush, Barbara Jordan, and world economic markets through the Hunt brothers.

You will learn about:

-Famous black history Texans like Bessie Coleman, Jack Johnson, Barbara Jordan and James Farmer
-Famous Texas Musicians like Buddy Holley, Roy Orbison and others
-The Texas Art movements like Texas Regionalism and the Dallas Nine
-The Great Depression and New Deal in Texas along with how Texas Political leaders responded to it
-The President Kennedy Assassination in Dallas
-Disasters in Texas like the New London school explosion and the Texas City Disaster
-The story behind the Zimmerman Telegram
-Business history with the origins of Texas companies like Texaco, Braniff, Texas Instruments, and other business developments
-Landmark Legal Cases in Texas like Roe v Wade and others that changed national policies
-Landmark Civil Rights cases that changed social policy through the nation.
-How Texas responded to the unrest associated with Pancho Villa
-Famous Texas outlaws like Bonnie and Clyde
-The end of Lynching in Texas
-How Texas made medical history with major surgery innovations

Texans also faced major challenges in the 20th century in the form of hurricanes, the assassinations of JFK and John Wood, the world’s worst industrial accident of that century at Texas City, the New London School explosion and two world wars. Whatever the challenge, Texans faced them with success.

Major financial events like the Sharpstown Scandal or how the Hunt Brothers almost cornered the world silver market changed the national policy on financial markets, campaign financing and comex policies. Texan Howard Hughes also changed the oil and airline business with his innovations.

The overcoming of challenges that came with the frontier continued through the 20th century as Texans dominated and left their mark on national politics, contemporary culture and music.
