Summary "Cotton was the king of Texas commerce. As immigrants flooded in, they turned more and more land over for cotton production. Towns and communities sprang up with an assortment of craftsmen and storekeppers.
These accounts of early Texas commerce express the feelings and hopes of the people themselves, lifting Texas far from the stereotype of a log cabin culture." -has illustrations
