    1. Episodes of Texas history starting with Columbus’s landing in the new world through the end of the Civil War are related in comic strip format. The author also includes a bibliographic essay on the original educational comic strip “Texas History Movies” by Jack Patton and John Rosenfield published in the Dallas Morning News between 1926 and 1927 and its reprint editions between 1928 and 1986 in book form.


    2. I had to have this book for my collection in remeberance of the old Texas History Movies I read when I was in elementary school way back when. This an entertaining way to learn a little Texas history without having to spend a lot of time reading. The comic book style sketches and art are wonderful.
