This is a new general history of San Antonio, the 7th largest city in the nation. The author weaves together the series of environmental, social, political, and cultural pressures that have shaped life in the Alamo City over three centuries. A popular work but with a scholarly attention to detail and nuance. Very nicely done by Miller. This is one of those books about San Antonio that make a good gift for friends visiting San Antonio. 5 &1/2 x 8&1/2 size.
This is # 25 in the Fred Rider Cotten Popular History Series.
