Texas Popular History Series
We’ve been working with the good folks at the Texas State Historical Association (TSHA), publishers of the Texas Almanac, to convert an excellent series of 19 popular history books. This series, the Fred Rider Cotten Popular History series, features books about different places and events in Texas’ rich history. Each book is well documented and footnoted, with great pictures. They range between 40 to 144 pages, and they are extremely affordable on the Kindle at $4.99 each. They are also available in bundles (cleverly named “Cotten Bales”, get it?) of like topics.
The series chronicles:
- Six historical battles (Alamo, San Jacinto, Goliad, Texas/Mexican War and two books on Texas in the Civil War);
- The history of five cities/places (Austin, Dallas, Ft. Worth, Galveston and McKinney Falls);
- Four historic houses and the people who occupied them;
- Four Forts, and their impact on Texas History.
A more detailed list is in the table below. I’ll post reviews of each one (look for titles with underlines) and links to the Kindle versions via the covers (clickable) in the table below as they become available for Kindle.[table "4" seems to be empty /]
