Chipman begins with the first European sighting of Texas shores in He goes on to chronicle the exploits of Cabeza de Vaca Francisco Va zquez de Coronado Luis Moscoso and other sixteenth century explorers before devoting extensive attention to the eighteenth century a time of active Spanish colonization .

Although Mexican independence ended the Spanish era in Chipman finds that Spain has left a substantial legacy in modern Texas Spanish precedents have shaped modern Texas law in the areas of judicial procedure land and water law and family law Spanish influences abound in Texas art architecture music and theater not to mention the widely spoken Spanish language And the Roman Catholic religion introduced by the Spaniards continues to have many adherents in Texas .

rediscover their history producing a stream of definitive works on the social political and economic structures of the Texas past Through meticulous research and terrific prose Campbell s collective work has fundamentally remade how historians understand Texan identity and the state s southern heritage as well as our understanding of such contentious issues as slavery westward expansion and

our modern understanding of Texas In this collection of seventeen original essays Campbell s colleagues friends and students offer a capacious examination of Texas s history ranging from the Spanish era through the s War on Poverty to honor Campbell s deep influence on the field Focusing on themes and methods that Campbell pioneered the essays debate Texas identity the creation of nineteenth

Miguel de Culiacan near the Pacific Coast of Mexico He then traveled under better circumstances although still on foot to Mexico City br br About a year later Cabeza de Vaca returned to Spain In the king granted Cabeza de Vaca civil and military authority in modern day Paraguay After arriving on the coast of Brazil in he was unable to find transportation by ship to the seat of his governorship He then led a group of more settlers through miles of unchartered back country during which he lost only two men br br Cabeza de Vaca s travels are amazing in themselves but during them he transformed from a proud Spanish don to lay advocate of Indian rights on both American continents That journey is as remarkable as his travels It was this great awakening that landed him in more trouble with Spaniards than Indians Settlers at Asuncion rebelled against the reformist governor incarcerated him tried to poison his food on two occasions and finally sent him to Spain in irons There he was tried and convicted on trumped up charges of carrying out policies that were the exact opposite of what he had promoted the humane protection of Indians br br This book examines the two great journeys of
