No Holier Spot of Ground icon
Using musty records in the attic of one of the oldest courthouses in Texas, a 6th-generation Texan here tells the fascinating tale of the rise and fall of a cotton plantation north of Houston. The reader gets the authentic feel of life along the Trinity River from 1835-1869. Here is documented proof of early racial mixing, the adulterous affair of the cotton planter whose plantation is reduced from 500 to 25 acres by a punitive Huntsville jury, the murder of a young son recently returned from Confederate battlefields, the rise of the Ku Klux Klan, and above all, the love of the land. This is Texas as it really was for those pioneers who settled it. For readers who love a good story, here is a real history in novel form. For the pure historian, there are source notes at the end of the book, with appendices containing hundreds of slaveholding planters in the county."
