Synopsis

Explorers and Settlers of Spanish Texas by Donald Chipman, Harriett Denise Joseph

In Notable Men and Women of Spanish Texas, Donald Chipman and Harriett Joseph combined dramatic, real-life incidents, biographical sketches, and historical background to reveal the real human beings behind the legendary figures who discovered, explored, and settled Spanish Texas from 1528 to 1821. Drawing from their earlier book and adapting the language and subject matter to the reading level and interests of middle and high school students, the authors here present the men and women of Spanish Texas for young adult readers and their teachers. These biographies demonstrate how much we have in common with our early forebears. Profiled in this book are: * Alvar Nunez Cabeza de Vaca: Ragged Castaway * Francisco Vazquez de Coronado: Golden Conquistador * Maria de Agreda: Lady in Blue * Alonso de Leon: Texas Pathfinder * Domingo Teran de los Rios / Francisco Hidalgo: Angry Governor and Man with a Mission * Louis St. Denis / Manuela Sanchez: Cavalier and His Bride * Antonio Margil de Jesus: God's Donkey * Marques de San Miguel de Aguayo: Chicken War Redeemer * Felipe de Rabago y Teran: Sinful Captain * Jose de Escandon y Elguera: Father of South Texas * Athanase de Mezieres: Troubled Indian Agent * Domingo Cabello: Comanche Peacemaker * Marques de Rubi / Antonio Gil Ibarvo: Harsh Inspector and Father of East Texas * Bernardo Gutierrez de Lara / Joaquin de Arredondo: Rebel Captain and Vengeful Royalist * Women in Colonial Texas: Pioneer Settlers * Women and the Law: Rights and Responsibilities
