Gone to Texas engagingly tells the story of the Lone Star State, from the arrival of humans in the Panhandle more than 10,000 years ago to the opening of the twenty-first century. Focusing on the state's successive waves of immigrants, the book offers an inclusive view of the vast array ofTexans who, often in conflict with each other and always in a struggle with the land, created a history and an idea of Texas.
Randolph B. "Mike" Campbell is Lone Star Professor of History at the University of North Texas.
