AND OTHER WRITINGS OF A GERMAN PIONEER IN TEXAS
By Hermann Seele
Translated by Edward C. Breitenkamp
Hermann Seele's personal record of the Germans in Texas portrays their
evolution from struggling colonists to prosperous citizens. From the viewpoint
of an imaginative pioneer, he gives us a history of German settlement in
Texas as well as a number of autobiographical writings. Included is his
romantic novel The Cypress, a delightful though improbable tale of a travel-
ing botanist, a chieftain's daughter, and a savage Indian cult.
