Cabeza de Vaca discovered Texas for Spain in 1528, and the Spanish regime, though it ended more than a century ago, has left its mark, enduring to this day, not only on the laws of Texas, but on its governmental policies, its social customs, its farming and ranching practices, its language, its place-names, its architecture, its religion and on the character of every inhabitant, from whatever nation descended. This book tells the story of the Spanish heritage in Texas and of the dynamic and often ruthless men who were responsible for that heritage.
