Creole Texana, a press in Austin, Texas, two years ago pub-
lished Gutidrrez de Lara, a Mexican-Texan: The Story of a Creole
Hero, for Miss Rie Jarratt. The book has twelve pages of intro-
ductory material and sixty-seven pages of story and thus leaves
the author room "to write later a longer and better biography"
(p. xi). Carl Hertzog has artistically designed the book and Jos6
Cisneros and Van Dorn Hooker, Jr., have provided attractive
illustrations. Gutierrez de Lara is an engaging, historical person-
ality and has received historical treatment by Julia Kathryn Gar-
rett, Harris Gaylord Warren, and others.

Volume XVI of Norwegian-American Studies and Records
($2.50) has been received from the Norwegian-American His-
torical Association, Northfield, Minnesota.
This volume is devoted to the story of Scandinavian migration
into the Pacific Coast area including Alaska. The establishment
of the first Scandinavian Lutheran Church in San Francisco in
1871 is the subject of the opening article. The second and third
studies tell of the migrations into Oregon and Washington, re-
spectively, and the last two are tales of life in the Klondike and
the Yukon Valley.
An extensive list of the recent publications relating to Nor-
wegian-American history is included.
The Ann Arbor Press, Ann Arbor, Michigan, has published
a series of essays by Everett S. Brown, the first of which is entitled
The Territorial Delegate to Congress.
In the introductory essay, the author says that he has endeav-
ored to describe an office as old as our federal government but
which has in the main been neglected. He gives a clear exposition
of the origins and the developments which have taken place. The
other nine essays cover a variety of subjects and are reprints from
journals in which they appeared.
