MEDIA REVIEWS
The travel diary, published for the first time in English, of a young German businessman who spent a couple of years in and around Houston just after the establishment of the Texas Republic. His journal is so crowded with glimpses of camp meetings, street fights, drinking sprees, and wilderness jaunts that it seems unlikely that he did a lick of work. A valuable find. * New Yorker *
