Texas Women and
by Betty J. Mills
& H. MOORE & CO. NEW YORK
Here is a volume that provides
informative, entertaining, and historically
accurate material concerning
the Texas pioneer women
and their fashions. While libraries
are filled with accounts of battles,
Indian raids, land acquisitions
and settlement of the west, little is
recorded that describes what the
women wore-and with good reason.
Necessity and resourcefulness
caused many of these garments to
be worn out or turned into something
else. This work, written by a
museum costume curator, fills
that important gap.
