Terry Jordan explores how German immigrants in the nineteenth century influenced and were influenced by the agricultural life in the areas of Texas where they settled. His findings both support the notion of ethnic distinctiveness and reveal the extent to which German Texans adopted the farming techniques of their Southern Anglo neighbors.

Review:

If one of my colleagues in American history asked me for a good book in geography, I would give him this one.

Detailed with maps, charts and pictures, the book is excellent reading for many Texans whose ancestors came to Texas direct from Europe.

The lasting benefits Texas has received from its Germans mark our place names, our historic records, even our food and drink. Dr. Jordan's [book] makes this clear and is a valuable contribution to Texana.

About the Author:

A sixth-generation Texan, the late Terry G. Jordan held the Walter Prescott Webb Chair in History and Ideas in the Department of Geography at the University of Texas at Austin. His many publications include Texas Log Buildings and German Seed in Texas Soil, both published by the University of Texas Press.
