Annotation As John Steinbeck observed, "Like most passionate nations, Texas has its own private history based on, but not limited by facts." Haley goes beyond the basic themes in Texas history -- politics, finance, civil rights and natural disasters -- to study the dusty byroads of Texas culture. He has colorful characters to work with, such as pioneer nationalists Sam Houston and Davy Crockett, Quaker abolitionist Benjamin Lundy, a wagonload of liquored-up turn-of-the century oilmen and such latter-day heroes as Lyndon Johnson, John Connally and Janis Joplin. 2006. Some violence, some strong language, and some descriptions of sex.
