We deal with dozens of place names in the course of everyday life—of streets, schools, parks, towns, natural features. Do the names mean anything beyond just labeling where we live, the routes we drive or the places we're going? This much enlarged edition of a favorite handbook identifies the origins of nearly 1,000 familiar place names in the San Antonio region. Naming sleuth Dr. David P. Green cracks mysteries that puzzled him in earlier editions, and comes up with several hundred new entries as well. Who—or what—is it named for? A leader or a rogue? A vanished family, a favorite pet or simply someone who happened to be around when a name was needed? This is a book with answers you'll find yourself referring to again and again.

Quintessentially historic Texas, San Antonio is the place where Old Mexico and the deep South, the Wild West and Native American culture meet and mingle. A stunning photographic portrait of the city, this book conducts visitors and natives alike to San Antonio's best known and most beloved landmarks as well as her lesser-known but no less fascinating historic sites, natural splendors, and cultural marvels. First stop, of course, is the Alamo, where more than 180 Americans and Texans, including Davy Crockett, lost their lives in a fierce thirteen-day battle with the Mexican army in 1936. A tour of historic San Antonio also includes La Villita, one of the original settlements housing Spanish soldiers; the Spanish Governors Palace; Fort Sam Houston; San Fernando Cathedral; and four mission churches. San Antonio is also home to the famous Paseo del Rio, or River Walk. The authors, longtime residents, take us along this thoroughfare through the heart of the city, along the San Antonio River's banks, past the teeming shops and restaurants, clubs, theaters, and posh hotels. They direct us then to the city's other highlights, such as the Tower of the Americas, Brackenridge Park and the San Antonio Zoo, the Marion Koogler McNay Museum and the San Antonio Museum of Art as well as five major military installations.

In his Spoon River Anthology, Edgar Lee Masters uses a series of poetic monologues to have his characters finally tell their true stories from their graves. The first section lets the reader know that all, all, are sleeping on the hill. San Antonio has its Powder House Hill about three miles from its central business district. Known as the Eastside Cemetery District, there are 31 cemeteries here, owned by different religious congregations, fraternal organizations, military groups, and the City of San Antonio. Like Masterss Spoon River, within the Eastside Cemetery District reside people of many occupations and nationalities, including soldiers and statesmen, rich and poor, as well as husbands, wives, and children. Through photographs and research, the authors hope to tell some small part of the stories and the history of this unique burial ground.

The San Antonio River, flowing for millennia from the highest peak in the Santa Lucia Mountain Range, carved out a valley on its way to join the Salinas River. These oak savannahs grow lush with native grasses and in spring ignite with one of the brightest wildflower displays in the state. Once the domain of the Salinan people, and later including the ranch lands of William Randolph Hearst, the valley now hosts the well-preserved Mission San Antonio de Padua, founded in 1771; farms and vineyards; mines and oil wells; historic Fort Hunter Ligget; and the communities of Jolon, Lockwood, Pleyto, and Bryson- Hesperia. Still ringed by blue, sometimes snow-capped mountains, this lovely valley remains a sanctuary for deer, mountain lion, tule elk, and the occasional black bear.

The story of the missions is a compelling human drama that is a vital piece not only of California history, but also of American history. Indeed, many keys to California's past lie in the stories of the 20 missions that stretch along the state's west coast from San Diego to San Francisco. This vital series is compatible with the mission-based curriculum used in fourth-grade California classrooms. It resonates equally with all social studies programs that explore the defunct notion of colonialism and its controversial role in the history of the United States, and with curricula that seek to explore the interaction of different cultures and the rights and voices of indigenous peoples.

Texans in Revolt

While the battles of 1836—the Alamo, Goliad, and San Jacinto—are wellknown moments in the Texas Revolution, the battle for Bexar in the fall of 1835 is often overlooked. Yet this lengthy siege, which culminated in a Texan victory in December 1835, set the stage for those famous events and for the later revolutionary careers of Sam Houston, James Bowie, and James W. Fannin. Drawing on extensive research and on-site study around San Antonio, Alwyn Barr completely maps the ebbs and flows of the Bexar campaign for the first time. He studies the composition of the two armies and finds that they were well matched in numbers and fighting experience—revising a common belief that the Texans defeated a force four times larger. He analyzes the tactics of various officers, revealing how ambition and revolutionary politics sometimes influenced the Texas army as much as military strategy. And he sheds new light on the roles of the Texan and Mexican commanders, Stephen F. Austin and Martín Perfecto de Cos. As this excellent military history makes clear, to the famous rallying cry "Remember the Alamo!" "Remember Goliad!" should be added: "And don't forget San Antonio!"
