30 editions published between 1940 and 1986 in English and held by 1,711 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Texas, A Guide to the Lone Star State, all these elements have been linked together to form a picture of the State as it is. There are 15,000 miles of tours telling the motorist where to go, what to see, and how to get there. Tours take you to places where you can fish or hunt in unspoiled streams and forests, as well as to inspect the old missions, the modern cities and ranches, and the Little Mexicos. Sixty-four pages of gravure illustrations make up a composite portrait of the State's people and natural setting, and 31 maps make travel through city and country easy for the driver"--Jacket flap

Texas slave narratives : a folk history of slavery in the United States from interviews with former Texas slaves by Federal Writers' Project( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The view that slavery could best be described by those who had themselves experienced it personally has found expression in several thousand commentaries, autobiographies, narratives, and interviews with those who "endured." Although most of these accounts appeared before the Civil War, more than one-third are the result of the ambitious efforts of the Federal Writers' Project of the Works Progress Administration (WPA) to interview surviving ex-slaves during the 1930s. The result of these efforts was the Slave Narrative Collection, a group of autobiographical accounts of former slaves that today stands as one of the most enduring and noteworthy achievements of the WPA. Compiled in seventeen states during the years 1936-38, the collection consists of more than two thousand interviews with former slaves, most of them first-person accounts of slave life and the respondents' own reactions to bondage. The interviews afforded aged ex-slaves an unparalleled opportunity to give their personal accounts of life under the "peculiar institution," to describe in their own words what it felt like to be a slave in the United States.--Norman R. Yetman
