Falfurrias: Ed C. Lasater and the Development of South Texas, by Dale
Lasater, is an in-depth biography of a prominent Anglo rancher, busi-
nessman, and political figure in South Texas. Falfurrias tells the tale of
Lasater's purchase of his land after a sheriff's sale of a cash-poor
Mexican settler's land over missed back taxes, his experiences with the
turbulent market forces of turn-of-the-century ranching, and continued
trials leading into the period of the First World War. Contact Texas

Doniphan's Expedition, by John Taylor Hughes, is a primary document
recorded by a participant in the United States-Mexico War. Hughes
describes his experiences in the volunteer regiment that took Santa Fe,
recording in detail his thoughts and feelings as a combatant in this con-
flicted region. Later killed while serving as a colonel in the Confederate
Army, Hughes recorded valuable information and can provide cultural
historians with ample detail for analysis of contemporary Anglo thought
and habits during the American invasion of Mexico. You can read about
