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 CastawayFrancisco Vazquez de Coronado: Golden ConquistadorMaria de Agreda: Lady in BlueAlonso de Leon: Texas PathfinderDomingo Teran de los Rios / Francisco Hidalgo: Angry Governor and Man with a MissionLouis St. Denis / Manuela Sanchez: Cavalier and His BrideAntonio Margil de Jesus: God's DonkeyMarques de San Miguel de Aguayo: Chicken War RedeemerFelipe de Rabago y Teran: Sinful CaptainJose de Escandon y Elguera: Father of South TexasAthanase de Mezieres: Troubled Indian AgentDomingo Cabello: Comanche PeacemakerMarques de Rubi / Antonio Gil Ibarvo: Harsh Inspector and Father of East TexasBernardo Gutierrez de Lara / Joaquin de Arredondo: Rebel Captain and Vengeful RoyalistWomen in Colonial Texas: Pioneer SettlersWomen and the Law: Rights and Responsibilities
