Life in Contemporary Texas

Spotlight on Texas

Texas has a cultural identity all its own, and this book introduces readers to the diverse influences that helped shape this identity. Readers explore the ways architecture, food, and even language in Texas are influenced by its close cultural and historical ties to Spain, Mexico, and Native American tribes. They also discover the fascinating stories behind the lives of some of the most important cultural figures to come from this state. Detailed images add another level to readers' understanding, while a helpful glossary, sidebars, and graphic organizers guide them through this exploration of the cultural landscape of Texas.
