with several maps addressed to specific
expeditions and events such as the battles
of the Texas revolution and the exploration
of the region by Spanish and American
parties. The maps are simple and
straightforward, and the supporting text is
to the point.
The atlas includes one map that I'm
eager to discuss with my friends who operate
a ranch on the Colorado River out at
the tiny town of Leaday, northeast of San
Angelo. Stephens and Holmes' map of
Coronado's expedition through Texas is
somewhat contrary to any other interpretation
I've seen. While Herbert Bolton
places Coronado's route through Palo
Duro Canyon south of Amarillo, Albert
Schroeder argues for a more northerly
route along the Canadian River. This atlas
plots their course over 200 miles south and
east from the Texas Panhandle, through
the heart of Jane and Randy's ranch!
They'll be delighted to hear this, as will
folks around Vernon, Texas who have
known for years that Coronado went way
off track when they trekked into Kansas to
find Quivira. It's been right here in Texas

Review by David 0. Brown
As the smoke cleared on the San Jacinto
River plain on the afternoon of April 21,
1836, Sam Houston's tiny band of illequipped
and undertrained Texans had
defeated the large Mexican army force
under General Santa Anna himself and
decisively won Texas independence. Few
events in Texas history have inspired such
pride and left such a lasting imprint on the
course of the state. The troubles of the
fledgling state were far from over, however.
