"Early in the year 1854, Frederick Law Olmsted, a young journalist [writing for the New York Times] . . . set off on horseback . . . A Journey through Texas recounts his travels along the Old San Antonio Road through the East Texas piney woods, the dry prairies farther west, the chaparral of South Texas, and the rich bottomlands around Houston. Omsted's energetic and detailed account is a classic in Texas literature and an indispensable sourcebook for historians."
