The Triumph & Tragedy of Lyndon Johnson: The White House Years

From Lyndon Johnson’s closest domestic adviser during the White House years comes a book in which “Johnson leaps out of the pages in all his raw and earthy glory” (The New York Times Book Review) that’s been called “a joy to read” (Stephen Ambrose, The Washington Post Book World).

Califano takes us into the Oval Office as the decisions that irrevocably changed the United States were being crafted to create Johnson’s ambitious Great Society. He shows us LBJ’s commitment to economic and social revolution, and his willingness to do whatever it took to achieve his goals. Califano uncorks LBJ’s legislative genius and reveals the political guile it took to pass the laws in civil rights, poverty, immigration reform, health, education, environmental protection, consumer protection, the arts, and communications.

President Lyndon Johnson was bigger than life—and no one who worked for him or was subjected to the “Johnson treatment” ever forgot it. As Johnson’s “Deputy President of Domestic Affairs” (The New York Times), Joseph A. Califano’s unique relationship with the president greatly enriches our understanding of our thirty-sixth president, whose historical significance continues to be felt throughout every corner of America to this day.

A no-holds-barred account of Johnson’s presidency, The Triumph and Tragedy of Lyndon Johnson is an intimate portrait of a President whose towering ambition for his country and himself reshaped America—and ultimately led to his decision to withdraw from the political arena in which he fought so hard.

Texas Jack

Jack Leonard’s father, Billy, is an alcoholic.

Billy isn’t a bad guy. Friends would say he’s the life of the party; his family might refer to him as harmless. After all, he isn’t a mean drunk … he’s a happy drunk.

Unfortunately, these things tend to run in the family, and it looks like Jack will inherit his birthright and join his father in the bottle.

Then Jack meets a girl, and what once seemed inevitable, never materializes. Samantha fills the little holes in Jack’s life. Fast-forward twenty years and his life is nearly perfect.

Except … that would be too easy. Life doesn’t work that way … and fate has a test in store for the Leonards.

Texas Jack is a compelling story about family relationships, redemption, and finding harmony with loved ones. It’s about people at their best and worst and everything in between. At the core is always family.

Recommended for anyone who enjoys a family drama, has been close to alcoholism, or believes in the power of love.

Leather and Lace (Lonesome Point Texas Book 1)

A sexy, swoony romance from New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author Jessie Evans.

Cowboy bikers, fireworks, and romance, oh my…

Wild girl, Mia Sherman, has a secret–she isn’t as fearless as she pretends. Descended from Lonesome Point, Texas’s founding family, Mia grew up hearing tales of an old Irish curse that had followed the Shermans to America. At age twenty-four, Mia is still terrified of the stories, because they aren’t stories. They are a warning about what will happen if Mia allows love and romance into her life. The curse struck Mia’s grandmother and her great-great-whatever grandmother, and Mia knows she could be next. The first-born daughter of every generation is cursed to lose her husband on her wedding night, which is one of the many reasons Mia has sworn off relationships.

Until the fateful day Sawyer Kane rides his Harley into her life …

Rancher turned restoration expert, Sawyer Kane, can’t believe his luck when the feisty owner of the lingerie shop next to his hotel turns out to be the curator of his latest project, a ghost town he’s been sent to restore. He’s looking forward to long, hot days talking history, and hotter nights with Mia, but the redhead with the killer smile seems determined to keep him at a friendly distance. But when a dangerous man from Mia’s past arrives in town, Sawyer finds himself drawn into her inner circle, and into the legend of Lonesome Point itself.

The Texas Revolution: Remember the Alamo and San Jacinto… (BiteSize History Book 1)

The winner surveyed the battlefield of the Alamo, and the battle he had just won. Mexican commander Antonio López de Santa Anna commented to an aide that “Much blood has been shed, but the battle is over; it was but a small affair.” Santa Anna was right, if one makes the mistake of looking just at the battle. It was a small affair.

The Alamo and the Battle of San Jacinto were part of a chain of events stretching back to the settlement of North and Central America. They start another chain, still with us today. The Texas-Mexican War of 1836 led to Texas becoming part of the United States in 1845. A year later the United States and Mexico were at war. Fifteen years later, inexorably, Fort Sumter was fired on and the United States was at war with itself.

This is the story of the first links in this chain, from before the Alamo was besieged in 1836 (for the third time in its history) through the aftermath of Texan success at San Jacinto. The reader is there, with Travis, Bowie, Crockett, Houston and Santa Anna.

The 150th anniversary of the American Civil War is a good time to examine a major incident on the road to that war. It is also a good time to examine a major influence on the modern history of the United States and the modern history of Mexico. This is a good time to remember the Alamo, to remember Goliad and to remember San Jacinto.

Sleuthing the Alamo: Davy Crockett’s Last Stand and Other Mysteries of the Texas Revolution (New Narratives in American History)

In Sleuthing the Alamo, historian James E. Crisp draws back the curtain on years of mythmaking to reveal some surprising truths about the Texas Revolution–truths that are often obscured by both racism and political correctness. This engaging first-person account of historical detective work illuminates the methods of the serious historian who searches for the more complex truths behind the glorious myths.
Beginning with a personal prologue recalling both the pride and the prejudices that he encountered in the Texas of his youth, Crisp illustrates how he discovered documents that have been distorted, censored, and ignored. In four chapters focusing on specific documentary “finds,” he uncovers the clues that led to these archival discoveries. Along the way, the cast of characters expands to include: a prominent historian who tried to walk away from his first book; an unlikely teenaged “speechwriter” for General Sam Houston; three eyewitnesses to the death of Davy Crockett at the Alamo; a desperate inmate of Mexico City’s Inquisition Prison, whose scribbled memoir of the war in Texas is now listed in the Guinness Book of World Records; and the stealthy slasher of the most famous historical painting in Texas. In his afterword, Crisp explores the evidence behind the mythic “Yellow Rose of Texas” and examines some of the powerful forces at work in silencing the voices from the past that we most need to hear today. An indispensable resource for anyone interested in the Alamo or historical detective work, Sleuthing the Alamo is also ideal for undergraduate courses in historical methodology, southwestern borderlands, the American West, Texas history, American expansion, Mexican-American history, race relations, and Southern history.

Texas Land Ethics

From the dense forests of the Big Thicket to the limitless vistas of the Davis Mountains, Texas is a land of astonishing diversity and natural beauty. Yet it is also a land where commuters endure endless traffic jams in the major cities and where pollution and environmental degradation threaten the most essential elements of our common living space—the land, air, and water.

In this thoughtful, practical book, Pete Gunter and Max Oelschlaeger offer a new vision for living on the land, a ‘land ethic’ that respects the stability, integrity, and beauty of the “land community.” Avoiding harsh rhetoric that seeks only to place blame and foretell doom, they discuss how economic and environmental goals may be reconciled so that Texans can continue to enjoy a reasonable prosperity while living in a land free of pollutants and scars, where some wild lands still exist and animals range freely.

In presenting their land ethic, the authors draw on the ideas of Aldo Leopold, whose A Sand County Almanac persuasively urges human beings to respect the land—with all of its animal and plant inhabitants—that supports us. This is an ethic to take Texas into the twenty-first century, in which the wise choices we make now will create a stable and sustainable future.
