Download and read online Texas Tales Your Teacher Never Told You in PDF and EPUB Cold facts and impersonal statistics may be the bacon of Texas history, but the tall tales and interesting side stories are the sizzle. In this book, C.F. Charlie Eckhardt presents some of the Texas history sizzle that is often ignored when pure historians write about the Lone Star State. He adds to the flavor of Texas history with tales about such things as the first Texas revolution, the first English speaking person in Texas, and the little known counterrevolution of 1838-1840. Charlie examines the expulsion of the Cherokees from Texas and provides details of some of the more famous Indian fights. Charlie also shows his romantic side with the legend of the famous Yellow Rose of Texas.

Download and read online The New Republic of Texas in PDF and EPUB The New Republic of Texas is ripped from the headlines realistic, full of suspense, intrigue and adventure! Hank Pennington was happy being a rancher, watching over a few thousand acres of prime Central Texas land. He did his bit for God and country, paid his taxes, and left Texas politics well enough alone. But one day an odd, secretive man named Paul Anderson showed up and turned Hank’s life upside down. Soon he would find himself not merely thrust into the heart of Texas gubernatorial politics but entangled in a life and death struggle with forces only talked about on late night radio shows. When Paul Anderson first shook hands with Hank, he was a man with a mission. He’d single-handedly chosen Hank Pennington to be the man to wrestle Texas away from a United States of America he could no longer support or defend, an America controlled and manipulated by a cabal of wealthy men who lived in the shadows, pulling strings and controlling every aspect of government. There was only one chance, one option, and one man who could pull it off: Hank Pennington. Get ready for a rumble… Texas style!

Download and read online Texas History for Kids in PDF and EPUB Like everything in the Lone Star State, the history of Texas is larger than life. The flags of six different nations have flown over the state, which had a rich Native American heritage long before European explorers such as Cabeza de Vaca, Coronado, and La Salle ever arrived. The state was even its own republic, achieving independence from Mexico in 1836, yet joined the United States in 1845. Author Karen Bush Gibson tells the 500-year saga of this unique state, from the founding of the Spanish Missions to the victory at San Jacinto, from the Civil War to the first oil gusher at Spindletop, from the Great Storm that destroyed Galveston to the establishment of NASA's Mission Control in Houston. Texas History for Kids also includes 21 informative and fun activities to help readers better understand the state's culture, politics, and geography. Kids will recreate one of the six flags to fly over Texas, make castings of local wildlife tracks, design a ranch's branding iron, celebrate Juneteenth by reciting General Order Number 3, build a miniature Battle of Flowers float, and more. This valuable resource also includes a time line of significant events, a list of historic sites to visit or explore online, and Web resources for further study. Karen Bush Gibson is the author of Women in Space, Women Aviators, Native American History for Kids, and three dozen other books for young readers. She lives in Norman, Oklahoma.
