On the eve of its centennial, Carol Dawson and Roger Allen Polson present almost 100 years of history and never-before-seen photographs that track the development of the Texas Highway Department. An agency originally created “to get the farmer out of the mud,” it has gone on to build the vast network of roads that now connects every corner of the state. When the Texas Highway Department (now called the Texas Department of Transportation or TxDOT) was created in 1917, there were only about 200,000 cars in Texas traveling on fewer than a thousand miles of paved roads. Today, after 100 years of the Texas Highway Department, the state boasts over 80,000 miles of paved, state-maintained roads that accommodate more than 25 million vehicles. Sure to interest history enthusiasts and casual readers alike, decades of progress and turmoil, development and disaster, and politics and corruption come together once more in these pages, which tell the remarkable story of an infrastructure 100 years in the making.

Authors Bob Alexander and Donaly E. Brice grappled with several issues when deciding how to relate a general history of the Texas Rangers. Should emphasis be placed on their frontier defense against Indians, or focus more on their role as guardians of the peace and statewide law enforcers? What about the tumultuous Mexican Revolution period, 1910-1920? And how to deal with myths and legends such as One Riot, One Ranger? Texas Rangers: Lives, Legend, and Legacy is the authors’ answer to these questions, a one-volume history of the Texas Rangers. The authors begin with the earliest Rangers in the pre-Republic years in 1823 and take the story up through the Republic, Mexican War, and Civil War. Then, with the advent of the Frontier Battalion, the authors focus in detail on each company A through F, relating what was happening within each company concurrently. Thereafter, Alexander and Brice tell the famous episodes of the Rangers that forged their legend, and bring the story up through the twentieth century to the present day in the final chapters.

Tom und Anna haben das Schlimmste erlebt, was sich Eltern vorstellen können: Ihre 13-jährige Tochter Julie wurde entführt, alle Suchaktionen waren vergebens, die Polizei hat den Fall längst zu den Akten gelegt. Acht Jahre später taucht plötzlich eine junge Frau auf und behauptet, die vermisste Tochter zu sein. Die Familie kann ihr Glück kaum fassen. Doch schon bald spüren alle, dass die Geschichte der Verschwundenen nicht aufgeht. Anna hegt einen furchtbaren Verdacht. Sie macht sich auf die Suche nach der Wahrheit über die junge Frau, von der sie inständig hofft, dass es ihre Tochter ist, die ihr gleichzeitig aber auch fremd erscheint und das gesamte Familiengefüge gefährlich ins Wanken bringt ... Good as Gone ist ein von Anfang an atemberaubend spannendes Buch darüber, wie wenig wir die kennen, die wir lieben. Amy Gentry spielt grandios mit verschiedenen Erzählperspektiven und führt die Leser auf zahlreiche falsche Fährten – bis zum fulminanten Finale.

In his hallmark companionable style, Gilbert Waldbauer introduces us to the aquatic insects that have colonized ponds, lakes, streams, and rivers, especially those in North America. Along the way we learn about the diverse forms these arthropods take, as well as their remarkable modes of life. While learning about the evolution, natural history, and ecology of these insects, readers also discover more than a little about the scientists who study them.
