"A book about oil and water, rangers and outlaws, Anglos and Hispanics, frontier and settlement, money and power...James Michener is something rare and valuable: an honorable craftsman doing honorable work....He manages to make history vivid and palatable to the reader."
Texas. A land of sprawling diversity and unparalleled richness; a dazzling chapter in the history of our nation, a place like no other on earth. Through the remarkable lives of four families, this epic saga spans four centuries and two continents and charts the dramatic formation of several great dynasties from the age of the conquistadors to the present day. A richly compelling novel of a proud people eager to meet the challenge of the land, TEXAS is James Michener's most magnificent achievement.

Good read, this book gives a great view on what shaped Texas. I found the task force parts of book just as enjoyable.

Overall good book but the switching back and forth between "task force" and the "historical " story line is a bit clunky. The narrator is really bad and very monotone. I don't think you have to have a narrator with a Texas twang but he butchers numerous words throughout that really make listening to this book quite tedious.
